Abstract [en]

Metal hoards with broken artefacts have for a long time been regarded as scrap metal hoards, which means that a smith has hidden away bronze with the intention to unearth it later and make new items from it. This idea is probably wrong and other explanations are needed. The aim of this paper is to study bronze items from the Late Bronze Age. The starting point will be a metal hoard from Härnevi. The bronze as a material will here be investigated in a social and religious perspective. By studying the items I hope to understand better the underlying thoughts that resulted in the deposition of the metal hoard from Härnevi.

This paper also gives an opportunity to see if it is possible to analyze items from the Late Bronze Age in a gender perspective. So far gender studies of metal hoards have focused on investigating the number of female and male items. This is called normative gender and can be understood as the social and cultural apprehension of the biological difference between men and women. Instead I want to examine the possibilities to understand items from the Bronze Age as belonging to persons with different social and religious functions in society. This is called non-normative gender.
