Abstract


A list of all the socketed axes and leaf-shaped swords in Scotland is presented along with maps showing their geographical distribution. From the main body of these two groups, distinctive types have been selected and by comparative study an effort has been made to establish reliable connections with areas outside Scotland. The objects were not evolved here; in common with most of the Scottish Late Bronze Age metal types they originated outside the country. An attempt is made to explain the presence of these Continental types in Scotland.
