      The British Isles possess a number of gold occurrences and a rich variety of gold ornaments of Bronze Age date reaching back to the earliest use of metal. However the history of gold working in the Bronze Age is curiously episodic and contradictory: for example periods when gold is at its scarcest show increased production and technical Cited by: 4.   The Bronze Age in Greece started with the Cycladic civilization, an early Bronze Age culture that arose southeast of the Greek mainland on the Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea around B.C.

      Ireland is unique in many ways in its cultural content. In the Iron Age, Britain and Western Europe were swamped by the Latin/Roman culture. In the Dark Ages this in turn was swept away to some extent by the coming of "barbarian" cultures. Thus W European and British traditions of Early Iron Age, Bronze Age, and earlier cultures were lost. The Handling Box is accompanied by a Resource Book. This Resource Book provides a pedagogical framework for using the Handling Box Resource in the classroom and in the Museum.

      We call the Iron Age the time when people began to use iron tools and weapons. This began in about BC. Iron tools were much stronger than bronze. The people who first used iron tools are known as the Celts. The Celts were a group of people from the mainland of Europe. It is not exactly clear when the Celts first came to Ireland as they did.   The so-called Nordic Bronze Age began in around 1, BC and lasted up to the emergence of the Iron Age in Scandinavia - BC. The reason why the North European regions - namely Denmark, Sweden, Norway coasts, and Pomerania - were so late to enter the Bronze Age is because they only learned about it through trade, and they weren’t trading Author: Aleksa Vučković.

The Bronze Age is a historical period that was characterized by the use of bronze, and in some areas proto-writing, and other early features of urban Bronze Age is the second principal period of the three-age Stone-Bronze-Iron system, as proposed in modern times by Christian Jürgensen Thomsen, for classifying and studying ancient societies.

Bronze Age Megaliths and Tombs [1,2,3].

For Ireland and Britain, it dates to about B.C., when early Bronze Age Irish craftsmen made great strides in metallurgy and demonstrated extraordinary skill in the production of gold artifacts. 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.

The Bronze Age View this topic in more detail (with illustrations) The Bronze Age in Ireland lasted from about BC to BC. Knowledge of how to make bronze, an alloy of tin and copper, came to Ireland from Europe. The copper was mined in Ireland, chiefly in county Kerry, while the tin was imported from Britain.
