Bronze Age treasure with fine decorations discovered in Poland

(ORDO NEWS) — Archaeologists examined a Bronze Age treasure found in northwestern Poland.

The find itself was made in 2017, and by amateur archaeologists, but experts examined it only now. The group of scientists was led by Maciej Kaczmarek from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.

In total, 124 items were found, among them there are several organic ones, for example, a leather strap. However, most of the objects were bronze items, both purely decorative and household items.

Basically, they were stacked in a bronze vessel. The most striking items were three Scandinavian cast vessels of the Hängebecken type, four wide collar-necklaces made of sickle-shaped plates, one of which depicts religious motifs, including an image that combines individual elements of a bird, a ship and the sun.

Among other artifacts were various kinds of rings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches and clasps.

The objects date back to 950-750 BC, the Bronze Age. This is also confirmed by radiocarbon analysis of organic remains – according to him, the treasure was buried in 790-740.
