Abstract

© 2014, CSIC Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas. All rights reserved. The Bronze Age settlement of Camp Cinzano (Vilafranca del Penedès, Alt Penedès, Barcelona province) yielded a riveted dagger stone mould in a funerary context C14 dated to c. 1850 cal BC. We examine the characteristics of the mould (typology and raw material) and the metal artifact found at the site and relate them to the metallurgy of the 2nd Millennium BC in the Northeastern Iberian Peninsula. We present the few comparable dag-ger moulds existing in the Iberian Peninsula and the Western Mediterranean and discuss the possible reasons for their rarity in the archaeological record. The data indicate two possible places of origin for the mould studied: the East coast of the Iberian Peninsula and Northern Italy (the Polada group). The latter is an area which exhibits greater interaction and relationships with the Northeastern Iberian Peninsula in the metallurgic sphere.
