Abstract
Most of these finds are from high spits and they are presumably all more recent than the Mesolithic activity in the rock shelter. The slag remains, including a hearth bottom indicate a single short-lived episode of blacksmithing, and the presence of two melted copper-alloy fragments in the same area suggests that limited bronze working also took place here. The glass beads have a broad date range.
