Eduardo, who was struck by how well preserved the items were, said: “The talk was quite enlightening. It’s important for the town to get a better understanding of the history that’s on their doorstep.

“The most important thing that came out of it was we gave students and local residents a sense of perspective and pride about the significance of the discoveries.”
