Greek treasures on display at Oxford's Ashmolean Museum


More than 500 gold, silver and bronze exhibits from a royal tomb have gone on display at Oxford's Ashmolean Museum.

They were discovered in the ancient palace of Aegae in Greece.

On display is an incredibly delicate golden wreath of myrtle flowers. Some of the finds date to the early Iron Age (1000 - 700 BC).

Macedonian art specialist, Dr Angeliki Kottaridi, said: "This exhibition is the most important Greek cultural event in many years."
