During the Bronze Age metal objects were deliberately deposited in rivers, bogs and lakes. The act of placing these objects, either in hoards or singly in water and watery contexts was ritual and may have been linked to events such as births and deaths in the community. It is possible that Bronze Age social hierarchies were in part maintained by controlling the exchange of prestigious items such as metalwork.
