Middle Bronze Age left-handed tanged sickles and a sword from the Ljubljanica River
The article discusses three bronze left-handed tanged sickles and a sword that were found in the Ljubljanica River. The sickles can be distinguished typologically according to the transition from the tang to the blade, the width of the blade, and the cross-section of the blade. Good analogies can be found in the settlement finds in the Po valley and in Hungarian hoard from the middle Bronze Age. A mould from Italy indicates the origin of production of left-handed sickles.
The sword belongs to the short swords of the Sauerbrunn type.
Keywords: Slovenia, Ljubljanica River, northern Italy, middle Bronze Age, sickle, mould, Sauerbrunn type sword
