Good news archaeology-lovers! We're nearly ready to share the first set of results from our Bronze Age dig in Lancashire!

You may remember us carrying out the micro-excavation of a beautiful Bronze Age urn on Facebook LIVE, which turned out to be full of cremated human bone. Removing it was a delicate (and also pretty dramatic) operation, and you can catch up on it here if you missed it.

Over the last few weeks, osteoarchaeologist Sam Walsh has painstakingly examined each and every fragment, and is nearly ready to share her initial results. We can barely wait! In the meantime, we've got something pretty special for everyone who crowdfunded this dig: a message from Neil Wilkin, curator of the British Museum's Bronze Age collection!
