Mold gold cape back on display in Cardiff and Wrexham

2 July 2013 Last updated at 19:25 BST

The Mold Cape is 3,700 years old and is described as one of the most important finds from the Bronze Age.

Now, the gold cape is on a tour of Wales, on loan from the British Museum in London.

It was discovered in Mold, Flintshire, in 1833 when workmen discovered a skeleton in a grave at the centre of a circular burial monument.

Despite its age, experts say they are continuing to learn more about life in prehistoric Europe.

It is being shown at the National Museum, Cardiff, from 2 July to 4 August.

It will also be on show at the Wrexham County Borough Museum from 7 August to 14 September.
