3,200-year-old key found in Austria

Archeologists have found a key dating back to the late Bronze Age in southern Austria.

The 41 centimeter (16 inches) long bronze key was only the third of its kind to be found in Austria, archaeologist Maria Windhager-Konrad said.

Experts were fascinated by the position of the 3,200-year-old key, which was surrounded by Bronze Age axes and other items, the report said.

"The items must have been placed like that on purpose," the AP quoted archaeologist Bernhard Hebert as saying.
