Axe, bronze, (Ripoll), late Bronze Age, 900-800 BC.

Cast bronze axe. This forms part of a group of pieces found at a site dating from the late Bronze Age, found near Ripoll, hence the name Dipòsit de Ripoll.

Findings of collections of worn or unusable pieces normally reflect an intention to accumulate the necessary material to melt it down again and obtain tools from it.
