Chronology: EBA (late)

A bronze axe has been found by chance along the shores of the Casarina peninsula, in the Paola lake. The author of the discovery handed the axe to M. Zei to keep it for a while, but afterwards the axe went missing. The axe “a margini rialzati” (flanged) was collected in the marshy silt (Zei 1988, 10). Afterwards, A. Liboni collected few potsherds in the same location (Alessandri 2007). The axe has been dated to the late EBA (Guidi & Pascucci 1996). The sherds fit well in this chronology.
