Gold Lunulae and Axehead, Early Bronze Age, St Merryn, Cornwall

Two Early Bronze Age gold lunulae and copper alloy flat axehead found in a barrow at Harlyn Bay, St Merryn in 1864. They were discovered on the west side of the bay, near the cliff edge, by a labourer digging a pond on land owned by Mr Hellyar. Lunulae are neck ornaments made from a flat sheet of crescent shaped gold with oval or square shaped terminals. The lunula on the left hand side is of provincial type, decorated with incised lines. It is identical to one found at Kerivoa and another from St Potan, Cotes-du-Nord, Brittany. All were made by the same craftsman using the same tools. The lunula on the right hand side is of classical type, decorated with incised lines. Beaker Period, around 2300 BC - 2000 BC. TRURI : 1866.1
