Heavy bronze flange‐hilted sword with a leaf‐shaped blade for slashing rather than thrusting. Originating in the early Urnfield traditions of central Europe, examples were exported to surrounding areas, some arriving in Britain, for example, in the Penard Period of the later Bronze Age, the 12th century bc.
