Abstract

This study discusses an unprovenanced dagger mould from the collection of the MoD IMMH1 and a new
bronze dagger found in Tahitótfalu-Szentendre Island. Both artefacts belong to the group of Peschiera daggers, which were the most characteristic in Europe between the Br D–Ha A1 periods. Besides analysing these
finds, some notes were also made on the manufacturing technology and use-life of the Peschiera-type moulds
and daggers in the Late Bronze Age from the Carpathian Basin.
