Return to the Hurlers top page

Rillaton Gold cup – Found in Rillaton barrow (a burial barrow of the bronze age) in 1837, along with a bronze dagger, beads, pieces of ivory and the skeletal remains of a man.

Perhaps not surprisingly, after its discovery the cup soon was missing from public view. Luckily, many years later it was located in King George’s 5 dressing room, storing collar studs. Now it is under the keeping of the British Museum.

More info. on the cup can be found at Meyn Mamvro.
