Bronze Age metal and amber in the Netherlands (III:2). Catalogue of the socketed axes, part B
This, Part III:2B of the publication of Bronze Age metal and amber in the Netherlands, is the second part of a catalogue and evaluation of the bronze socketed axes in the Netherlands. We classify, list and map the socketed axes with imitation wings (without face arches); those with face arches (without imitation wings); those with imitation wings and face arches; those of Form Wesseling; and some others. Attention is given to questions of importation and regional production, to the existence of an 'Ems-Weser' or 'Hunze-Ems' axe-producing industry. A subsequent Part III:2C will display types, whether imported or local/regional products, represented by numbers too small in the Netherlands to have a distinctive distribution.
