The Yamnaya culture is a Late Copper Age/Early Bronze Age culture of the Southern Bug/Dniester/Ural region (the Pontic steppe), dating to the 36th–23rd centuries BC. The name also appears in English as Pit-Grave Culture or Ochre-Grave Culture. Construction - Construction - Bronze Age and early urban cultures: It was the cultures of the great river valleys—including the Nile, the Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus, and the Huang Ho—with their intensive agriculture based on irrigation—that developed the first communities large enough to be called cities. These cities were built with a new building technology, based on the clay.

  Migdale Hoard, Early Bronze Age, c. BC, Sutherland, Scotland. The Migdale Hoard dates all the way back to a time when bronze was first being made in the British Isles. It includes a bronze axe, but like the St Andrews Hoard, it also contains some rather more fascinating items; some bronze hair ornaments, a pair of bronze bangles or anklets, and several pieces of a woman’s .

1 Memory, Death and Time in British Prehistory: Round Barrows of the Early Bronze Age David Cockcroft Abstract: Grasping at memory and remembrance in prehistory can be akin to catching smoke; however, the monuments of the Neolithic (c. – BC), and Early Bronze Age (c. – BC), exist in an active landscape of emotion, life and death, both of the.

With the exception of some works by Armstrong and a few isolated publications of associated finds (references to which may be found below), no attempt has been made in the intervening years to bring Coffey's work up to date.

The purpose of the present work, therefore, is to assemble and present a corpus of the associated finds of the Early. The Bronze Age in Ireland. Please scroll down to learn more about the Early, Middle and Late Bronze Age in Ireland.

Introduction to the Bronze Age in Ireland. The Irish Bronze Age dates from approximately BC to BC. The period is characterised by the wealth of new, innovative and associated finds containing copper or bronze. book metalworking techniques. Copper Ore Use in the Bronze Age.

Ireland had significant copper and gold resources during prehistory, making it arguably, one of the most important metal producing areas in early prehistoric Europe.

Copper ore was used to make tools of copper, and later mixed with tin to make bronze tools. Thirty-eight hoards are known from the Copper Age, 32 from the Early Bronze Age, just 5 from the Middle Bronze Age and from the Late Bronze Age (O’FlahertyEogan and ).

One of the earliest hoards is the Castletown Roche hoard of four flat copper axes which were found close to the Awbeg River in Cork. An analysis of Irish Early Bronze Age hoards containing copper or bronze objects. Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland10 – 45 O'Flaherty, R.

Cited by: 7. The Copper Age continued until / BC when copper was alloyed with tin to create bronze and the Early Bronze Age commenced. The Copper Age is distinguished from the preceding Late Neolithic as mining and the use of copper and gold came into use, hoards of metal objects were deposited and Grooved Ware style pottery was replaced by a new international style known as Beaker.

Bronze Age Megaliths and Tombs [1,2,3]. Single Burials: In eastern Ireland, the people moved away from the traditional megalithic types of tomb, which typified the Neolithic, opting instead for simple pits, or cists containing ashes or even ds of such cists have been found in all parts of Ireland, dating between and BC, but their numbers are greater in Ulster and Leinster.

How did the Bronze Age start. The ancient Irish learned the trick of making bronze from French settlers who crossed the water to meet them.

The technology had already been in place for quite some time on the continent, but as Ireland was cut off from the mainland it took a long time for it to reach the small little island off the coast of mainland Europe.

Ancient Sumer may have been the first civilization to start adding tin to copper to make bronze. Bronze was harder and more durable than copper, which made bronze. The Bronze age began BCE in the eastern Mediterranean and lasted until BCE when efficient iron smelting brought forth the dawn of the Iron Age.

During this period copper and tin were smelted together to create bronze, an alloy stronger than its components and easier to create than refining iron. However, there is an unresolved question. The Bronze Age period in Ireland dates from around BC when copper and gold were being mined and smelted.

Copper was used for utensils, tools, and also for adornment. When mixed with tin the resultant alloy is bronze, a much harder material than pure copper and thereby more useful for use in weaponry.

basic text for this area remains Harbison's Catalogue of Irish Early Bronze Age Associated Finds Containing Copper or Bronze (), which includes metalwork recovered from graves as well as hoards and which is now almost thirty years old.

One of the characteristic types of artifact of the Early Bronze Age in Ireland is the flat axe, notably the Ballybeg-type flat axe.
