18 July 2013 Last updated at 21:20 BST

Bronze Age pottery and a "very rare" axe have been found at the site of a future tungsten mine near Plymouth.

Wolf Minerals, the firm behind the development of Hemerdon mine, has provided £1m towards the four year archaeological project as part of the planning agreement.

The dig will end later this year, with the company hoping to begin mining by the end of 2014.
