Bush Barrow Copper Dagger

This copper dagger, 27 cms long, was also found near the right arm of the skeleton and was possibly already an antique at the time it was placed in the grave. It was made also in Brittany, had a wooden scabbard lined with sheepskin and a wooden handle inlaid with thousands of minute gold pins arranged in a zig-zag design.
