The excavation and conservation of an Iron Age cauldron.

In November 2004 CE, a metal detector user discovered 12 cauldrons dating back to the Iron Age (around 800 BCE - around 43 CE), buried in a pit near the village of Chiseldon in Wiltshire, England. This chance find was carefully excavated by professional archaeologists and conservators from the British Museum.
