Causeway's golden age was in reality an age of bronze

By Eddie McIlwaine

Metals, Wealth and War is an exhibition at the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady, which runs until Saturday, April 15.

"Within this exhibition, it becomes clear that Ireland's 'golden age' was an age of bronze," says the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Maura Hickey.

Metals, Wealth and War explores life in the Bronze Age across the Causeway area.

It was a time which saw a new population cross over the seas to mix with and replace the existing Stone Age people.

The newcomers made objects out of metal for the first time - tools and weapons of bronze and jewellery and adornments of gold.

The public can view the display on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 9.30am to 5pm, and from 9.30am to 9.30pm on Thursdays and Fridays.

Admission is free.
