About the Find

The Havering hoard is the LARGEST hoard found so far in Greater London. A whopping 453 bronze objects, dating between 900 and 800 BC, were discovered in 2018 and include sword fragments, axe heads, spearheads, daggers, knives and other rare finds. These were found arranged as 4 ‘packages’ beneath the floor of what may have been a Bronze Age roundhouse. Altogether, the hoard weighed 45kg!
