Bronze and Iron Age 'moustaches'

Suggested period: BRONZE AGE

Nearly 60 moustache-shaped objects have now been recorded on the PAS database. They are dated from similar objects found in Bronze Age hoards, but are sometimes thought on stylistic grounds to be Iron Age. Until more are found in context (e.g. in hoards or on excavated sites) it will be difficult to assign a definite date and function, but there is now a large enough PAS dataset to investigate some patterns, including different types and geographic patterns.
