[CP]

Industrial stage of the British late Bronze Age characterized technologically by the widespread introduction of copper–lead–tin alloys and typologically by styles of leaf‐shaped slashing swords, socketed spearheads with a peg for securing them to their wooden shaft, horse‐bits, and socketed axes. Broadly dated to 1000–800 bc, it is named after a large hoard of bronzework found at Wilburton in Cambridgeshire in January 1882. See Wallington Industry.
