Arm Ornaments

1500-1300 BC

Bronze Age Hungary

Originally both ends would have been tightly spiralled and would have ‘protected’ the elbow and back of the hand respectively. Such objects are characteristic of the Tumulus Culture of Central Europe. This example is one of a pair. They were part of a hoard which also contained twelve other ornaments and a sword.
