RARE bronze-age treasures were sold on eBay for £205, a coroner heard yesterday.

The 3,000-year-old haul was eventually handed to the British Museum after it was bought by a Dutch archeologist described as the Netherlands' version of Tony Robinson.

The series of 15 axe heads was believed to have been dug up using metal detectors by a couple known as Stuart and Tracey, from the Milton Keynes area of Buckinghamshire.

It truly is an amazing find. This is the second ever bronze-age collection to be found in the Buckinghamshire area. It's a pity though that they were all given to the Buckinghamshire County Museum. It is these sort of finds that help archaeologist understand what these people were like and how they lived their everyday life, even if it was 3,000 years ago.
