A rare Middle Bronze Age weapon, one of only six known from Europe, has been saved for the nation with a grant of almost £39,000 from the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF).
The Rudham Dirk
Norfolk Museums Service purchased the Rudham Dirk, an exceptionally rare and internationally significant Middle Bronze Age artefact. Having remained buried for over 3,500 years, it was ploughed up in a farmer’s field in north Norfolk. It will now be placed on permanent display in the archaeology galleries of Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery.
