About the book

This publication is a thorough and systematic study of the earliest metalwork in Denmark based on a comprehensive and very detailed catalogue of all copper, bronze and gold objects (1200 objects in c. 900 recorded finds).

The late Neolithic and the initial phases of the Bronze Age, c. 2350 - 1500 BC, is the first period with a local production of metal objects which are increasingly being incorporated into various practical and social uses, whereas the value of flint and stone decreases simultaneously. The early metalwork includes a variety of tools, predominantly axes, which form a significant part of the study as primary objects of classification and interpretation.
