Fincham: Knife find could rewrite history
A BRONZE age find has caused a stir among seasoned archeologists as a knife found near Fincham threatens to rewrite the history books.
Stephen Sproule, 38, from Shouldham, was metal-detecting with his father in a field near Fincham when he came across the blade which had not been held for nearly 3,000 years.
He said: “My father and I had searched the field many times before and we had previously unearthed some Bronze Age weapons including spears and swords which are now in Norwich Castle Museum.
“After a few hours, we had found only old scrap metal when I had a positive signal.
“I knew straight away that it dated to the late Bronze Age and I was thrilled to realize I was the first person to see and hold the blade for about three thousand years.”
