Abstract

The analyzed assemblage was found in 2008 by Gergely Radovics, in the vicinity of Kesztölc (Hungary, Komárom-Esztergom county). It consists of 107 artefacts (total weight: 12260.31 g) which can be divided into nine groups based on their function: 1. weapons; 2. utensils; 3. clothing parts; 4. metal vessel; 5. wagon part; 7. semi-finished products; 8. metallurgical byproducts; 9. unclassifiable objects. The aim of this study is to give a complete evaluation of the artefacts in question by using the typo-chronological method and macroscopic observations. In addition, due to the finder’s statement we were able to reconstruct the original context and re-localize the exact finding place.
