Economies of Destruction team

We are a team of archaeologists working on a study trying to unravel the mysteries behind metalwork depositions in the Bronze Age. Our project takes us across the vast landscapes of North-Western Europe, investigating finds from amongst hoards, monumental sites and within ancient burials. We want to know why this strange practice of destroying and burying one’s wealth emerged in the first place, and what this can tell us about the Bronze Age people behind the objects.
