S1-E4 Age of Bronze



Neil Oliver examines the consequences of the application of metal to everyday life. He travels to the south-west of Ireland in search of the first copper to be mined beyond mainland Europe. He also handles the possessions of the Amesbury Archer, which contained earliest copper and gold ever found in Britain, putting the islands with their rich natural resources at the technological forefront of the Bronze Age. Last in the series.
