Analyses chimiques des objets métalliques des dépôts terrestres du Bronze moyen et du Bronze final du nord ouest de la France. Mise en évidence d’une chronologie basée sur des signatures identifiables

Abstract : Metal artifacts chemical analysis of Middle and Late Bronze ages hoards from NW France area. Geochemical signature as a way to confirm chronology. NW France area is characterized by a large number of metallic terrestrial hoards for all Bronze Age periods. Thus, a chemical composition statistical study by ICP-AES can be performed, taking into account several hoards in the same area for each period. Almost all the artifacts in the hoards were considered, and globally more than 500 artifacts were analyzed. This statistical method led to identify chemical signatures, which are characteristic and different for each Bronze Age period. These results suggest that metal recycling from one period of Bronze Age to another one was not a major phenomenon. A large part of metal consumed should have been newly extracted metal from mining areas. These observations led to hypothesize a common origin of metal. For Late Bronze I, chemical signature is different to the previous one, but still a little bite close to it. Between these two periods, a change of metal supplying may have occurred, and thereby a change of exchange trading.
