Absolutely stunning. When you think about it, these tools were at least 2,000 years old when they were discovered.

The Isle of Harty hoard.

A metal workers 'kit' from the late Bronze Age, discovered c. 1873.
The objects include three bronze moulds, together with the axes cast from them, a mould and cast of a wood working gouge, two hammers, a whetstone, and some ingots of copper.

The objects are now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
