Prague flat hid thousands of historical items

prehistoric arrow heads Few thousands metal items were collected by a man who died the flat fire in Prague in 2005. When the fire scene was cleaned away, suspicious items were found, which archaeologists dated from prehistoric ages (stone axes) to medieval ages (spurs).

The problem is, the items are not described as unlike archaeologists, metal hunters usually do not register valuable data about their finds. Their scientific value is negligible since concrete localities where the finds come from are unknown.

The collection is in the Prague Archaeological institute right now. The future of it is uncertain, as the museums in Prague probably won’t exhibit items of unknown origin.

The items consist of prehistoric stone axes, arrow tips, Germanic bronze buckles, fragments of weapons, medieval spurs or parts of armor.
