Bronze Age treasure discovered at hospice site

Six items were discovered in what is believed to be an ancient boundary ditch at the East Coast Hospice site on Sidegate Road, near Beacon Park.
The team from Hertfordshire-based Archaeological Solutions found two quoit-headed pins about 35cm long, two large decorated twisted torques 18cm diameter and two small torques.
The company was asked to carry out an archaeological survey ahead of the submission of a formal planning application for the new hospice serving the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area.
