Bronze Age

Pottery and Implements

The patterns of settlement and trade during the Bronze Age (1800-600 B.C.) are shown in these two maps. The first metal-users are thought to have been the makers of Beaker pottery (Map 3), whose origins can be traced back to the Rhineland and ultimately to Spain. The presence of metal ores in the area seems to have led to extensive activity within the Snowdonia massif, as well as a con­tinuation of settlement in more favoured areas.
