"Bronze Age metalwork has always caught the interest of archaeologists, largely due to the very large volume and variety of objects that is still being recovered on an almost daily basis. Regional catalogues have been repeatedly undertaken in an attempt to manage the sheer wealth of data and analyse the implications. In 1983, one of us (SP) published such a study of south western Britain, contributing a catalogue of 896 find spots. ... This volume is intended to bring the 1983 corpus of south western Bronze Age metalwork finds up to date by documenting finds made in the four counties [Cornwall including the Scilly Isles, Devon, Dorset, and Somerset] between January 1980 and July 2014. The intention here is ... to point to several key themes that have become prominent in Bronze Age studies since 1983 and to some that remain relatively underexplored."--Introduction, page 1
