Metal jewellery is one of the most significant features of Bronze Age life, discovered as valued grave goods, buried with men and women alike. The wealthiest burials were those of warriors and princes, often containing exquisitely made bronze swords, spears, and jewellery. It was a very important part of most Bronze Age societies and something that held great value as a major part of their identity. Bronze bangles, such as this beautiful example, would have been worn as brecelets or armbands.
