Unearthed in 1999 by three German grave robbers, The Nebra Star Disc has been called "the find of a lifetime." The star disc is made of bronze, measures 30 cm in diameter and is inlaid with golden symbols of the sun, moon and stars.

"This is the extraordinary story of how a small metal disc is rewriting the epic saga of how civilization first came to Europe over 3,000 years ago." National Geographic
