A detailed and useful study on the previously neglected phase of metallurgical adoption in Denmark, c.2350-1500 BC. It presents a coherent analysis of the entire corpus of Danish metal finds from this period, with especial emphasis on establishing an accurate chronology, based on several qualitative and quantitative analyses of the data. Conclusions drawn are then used to discuss the socio-political and economic structure of this important phase of man's development.
