A group of Bronze Age metal objects discovered in Poland

A local metal detecting group in Poland has discovered a group of Bronze Age metal objects, including axe heads and sickles.

The discovery was made in an area known as the Lynx Field, located in Słubice, western Poland.

The recovered artifacts consist of three sickles, two axes, four bracelets (three with engraved decorations), six rings, two pieces of wire, and a fragment of a bronze needle. There was also a remnant of casting waste.

Archaeologists have not yet commented on the finds, which were made with the permission of the Lubusz Provincial Conservator of Monuments.

This is indicated by the heterogeneous nature of the discovered objects (ornaments, weapons, household items) and the presence of foundry waste. For example, a similar previous find from the Gubin area is associated with the creation of the Lusatian Urnfield culture community from the Bronze Age and is tentatively dated to the 4th period of the Bronze Age (1000-800 BC). In fact, such discoveries have already been made in Lubuskie. Since those times were turbulent and bronze was worth its weight in gold, bronze producers often hid their treasures.

The artifacts will be transferred to a museum for study and conservation.
