An oak barrel full of butter, estimated to be roughly 3,000 years, old has been found in a peat bog in County Kildare in Ireland.
The amazing discovery was found by peat workers John Fitzharris and Martin Lane who noticed a white streak in the bog.
When they knelt down to examine it, they saw it was a barrel, or trunk, full of butter. It was largely in tact and had a lid.
It had a large split down it caused by the butter expanding over time.
Archaeologists say the barrel, which is 3ft long, almost a foot wide and weighs 35kgs(77lbs), is a ‘really fine example’.
Pádraig Clancy, of Ireland’s National Museum, estimates that the barrel is approximately 3,000 years old, from the Iron Age.
