Caption

Four flat metal celts showing the progression that generally lead from the copper age to the early bronze age. The axe left is copper and simple, probably cast in a flat surface mould. The second is bronze and deeper and more refined, appearing to be cast within a solid or two piece mold. The next shows a wider cast cutting edge and larger size indicative of more readily available raw material. That form would lead to the palstaves of the middle bronze age.
