Abstract [en]

-This paper presents a newly found but ploughed-out hoard of cast bronze objects from Mästerby parish Gotland. The objects - 5 sword pommels and 16 pendants - were found by metal detector can be dated to the late 10th Century AD. The hoard is of particular interest from an archaeometallurgical point of view since none of the objects appears to have been finished off and made ready for use. Hence it is good a clue to Gotlandic non-ferrous metalworking in the Viking Period.

Abstract [sv]

Artikeln är en inledande presentation av en nyfunnen, men utplöjd, depå av vikingatida bronsföremål vilken sedan 2006 har återfunnits med metalldetektor i Mästerby socken på Gotland. Totalt har 5 svärdsknappar och 16 fiskhuvudformiga hängen återfunnits och dessa ger en tydlig datering till sent 900-tal e.Kr. Fyndet är av särskillt intresse för förståelsen av gotländskt metallhantverk under denna tid då inga av föremålen har färdigställts utan deponerats i halvfärdigt skick.
