Workshops in Mecklenburg. Craftsmen´s traces and metal compositions reveal centres of production 1550-1100 BC

Publikation: KonferencebidragPosterForskning

In archeology, it has long been common to align typological groups with workshops and centres of production. Today, research shows that determination of a prehistoric workshop is only possible when an object gives an indication of its crafting process and that information can be matched between multiple objects. This logistical argument is based on the hypothesis that each craftsman leaves intuitive marks through their choice of tool, the way in which a decorative element is introduced and combined and the different techniques used. This project´s aim is to investigate middle Bronze Age ornaments (1550-1100 BC) from the Nordic Bronze Age (here specific ornaments in Mecklenburg) concerning their crafting traits to detect “the hand that crafted”.
