The Rillaton Cup, discovered in Cornwall in 1837, has been on long-term loan to the British Museum since 1936. It has now been reunited with similar gold cups, as well as further prehistoric material, in the first major exhibition focusing on the culture and people of the period of the building of Stonehenge, the world-famous monument in Wiltshire.
