The ministry says they were probably buried at a time of unrest or war...

Actually most cultures don't bury their weapons in times of unrest or war. It's possible that what they have is the remains of someone's peace ceremony - burying the hatchet.

“Burying the Hatchet” was my first though as I read the article. I was taken surprised at the idea that someone would bury their weapons during war and then lose them.

Perhaps it was the first “ weapon buyback” program. For each sword, axe or spear, you get x amount of grain or some other commodity.
