Abstract

We summarize the evidence for believing that the Mourne Mountains of Co. Down were an important source of gold and time during the early Bronze Age. We suggest that these metals might have been extracted from buried eluvial/alluvial deposits and we present evidence for what might be the remians of prehistoric stream-works.
