Comment on Bronze Age sword found in a Co. Meath Bog by Liam Nolan http://irisharchaeology.ie/2015/07/bronze-age-sword-found-in-a-co-meath-bog/#comment-158439 Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:03:49 +0000 http://irisharchaeology.ie/?p=8173#comment-158439 Wonderful iconic votive find and most likely a votive offering. Unusual to see these items in one piece, so well spotted and recorded. I found an Early Bronze Age Flat Axe head two years ago that is now with the NMI, also a votive offering, with a white flat stone on top, in marshy ground next to a river. I found that with a metal detector and it aroused a lot of comment at the time! The Irish Metal Detecting Society was formed afterwards to protect scheduled sites from irresponsible use of detectors, to control, regulate and educate users and to work with archaeologists to rescue items in the plough soil that face total fragmentation unless rescued. If anyone would like to chat about any metal detecting issues over a coffee, then I would be delighted to meet up before 20th July. its a controversial subject that badly needs debate so that all sides benefit, Liam liam@ukrsa.com
