Migdale Hoard

The Migdale Hoard is a priceless collection of early Bronze Age jewellery discovered by workmen blasting a granite knoll behind Bonar Bridge, Scotland, near what is known as "Tulloch Hill" in May 1900.[1][2]

Dating from about 2000BC, the artifacts are in the custody of the National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh. They include a bronze axe head,[3][4] sets of bronze bangles[5][6][7] and anklets,[8] and a series of beautifully carved jet and cannel coal buttons[9] that may well have adorned a Bronze Age jacket, bronze hair ornaments and fragments of an elaborate bronze headdress.[10]
