Wallington Industry

Quick Reference


Industrial tradition of the British later Bronze Age, part of the Wilburton–Wallington Phase (10th–8th centuries bc), whose products were confined mainly to the area north of the River Humber and south of the Forth. Unlike industries further south, Wallington Industry is characterized by rather old‐fashioned types made using old‐fashioned technology. Metalwork of the industry includes palstaves, square‐mouthed socketed axes with flat collars, dirks, rapiers, basal‐looped spearheads, and tools such as hammers and chisels.
