      HUGE BRONZE AGE HAUL FOUND IN AUSTRIA

      Europe's biggest-ever discovery of Bronze Age weapons and jewellery has been
      made in Austria.

      Archaeologists believe the hoard could prove Bronze Age Europe rivaled
      Greece in terms of early society and technology.

      The scientists from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian National
      Memorial Office have so far found 360 pieces buried at the side of a crevice
      in Moosbruckschrofen am Piller in Tyrol.

      It is thought they were laid there as part of a ritual offering sometime
      between 1550 and 1250 BC.

      As well as swords, axes, spearheads, sickles and jewellery the historians
      also found part of a bronze helmet.

      It is thought the helmet could be one of the earliest such finds, Austrian
      Broadcasting Company ORF reported.

      The only other helmet thought to be from the 14th or 13th century BC was one
      that had been discovered on Crete, which the experts say is of a totally
      different sort.
