They probably crushed it and threw it away because it kept tipping over.

Can anyone parse this sentence for me?

The Ringlemere Cup is thought to be one of only a handful found in Europe

Don't they know where this cup was found or how many others have been found?

AN important archaeological find by Broadstairs man Cliff Bradshaw prompted further excavations which uncovered centuries- old Anglo-Saxon graves.
The Ringlemere Cup is thought to be one of only a handful found in Europe. Dating from 1700-1500BC and made of beaten gold, it emphasised the intricate craftsmanship of the early Bronze Age.

The anglo saxons didn’t come until the 300-400’s AD. These aren’t are not anglo saxon graves. they’re celtic.

Did you find any pictures of the toilet seat? I wonder if that technology has changed in the last 3000 years.
