Quick Reference


An early industrial stage (Stage IV) of the British early Bronze Age spanning the later 2nd millennium bc and part of Burgess's Mount Pleasant Period. It is named after two Scottish hoards: Migdale in Highland and Marnock in Grampian. The industry is characterized by the use of copper, bronze, and gold in the production of pins, awls, tubular beads, basket‐shaped earrings, rings, bracelets, narrow‐butted flat axes, riveted flat daggers, and hollow cones. The industry overlaps with the early stages of the Wessex Culture, and has links to the early Úneˇtice/Reinecke A1 metalworking traditions on the continent.
