Michael Giustra and his sister Gemma were walking in their suburban neighbourhood in July when they stumbled upon a bronze age ax buried in the earth, along with a bag of artifacts.
“I thought the ax was a bit strange and rather than trying to dig it up because we didn’t have any tools or anything, I kept it for a while,” Michael told Evening Standard.

“Then my sister and I were stood in the garden, looking around, listening to music,” he said. “My sister said, ‘have you seen something in the dirt?’ And I said, ‘What do you mean?’ She showed me this lump in the dirt. I thought it must be a chunk of rock and not something quite this big, and it dawned on me that it was a bronze axe.”
Michael and his family immediately began organizing to have the ax tested for historical clues, and received good news.
“Everything we found was dated between AD 50 and AD 1500. It was then we knew that this could be a bit historic,” Michael said.
