Quick Reference


Rather plain and shoddily made type of socketed bronze axe produced in the period 600–650 bc at the very end of the Bronze Age of northern France (Hallstatt II). Mostly found in large hoards, in which few examples appear to have been finished or used. This has led to the suggestion that they were somehow connected with emergency trade in metal rather than finished products.
