A 2000 year old decorated Iron Age mirror was found by a metal detectorist in South Oxfordshire, UK, in 2006. This film documents a museum project to take metallurgical samples for research into the mirror’s origins and its possible relationship to a second mirror found 40 miles away. The film also considers the wider significance of this enigmatic object, and its possible role in ritual or magical beliefs of the ancient Britons who made it.
