Bronze summary

The majority of the bronze collected in T-26, 1987 LM/78-81 and MNO/72-77 was in the form of small bronze flakes which were stored in a representative bag measuring 7cmX1cmX3cm (see AAC, box I). These flakes may have served as decoration for a small wooden box or piece of furniture, as they were often found in close vicinity to carbonized wood pieces and ivory

inlays. Small bronze beads and nails were also recovered from the same meter grids within the trench (see p 28 , #1 and 2, p 29 , #7). A fragment of a bronze blade (p. 56 , #7) and a bronze rings (p. 44 , #4) were also found but not in areas containing additional bronze pieces. The latter was recovered in the same metere grid as the forno fragment. Two pieces of slag were also recovered and stored for further analysis.
