The so called Atlantic Bronze Age is a cultural complex of the period of approximately 1300–700 BC that includes different cultures in Portugal, Andalusia, Galicia and the British Isles. It is marked by the economic and cultural exchange of some surviving aboriginal cultures that would eventually yield to the advance of Iron Age Indo-Europeans (Celts mostly) at the end of the period. Their commercial contacts extend to Denmark and the Mediterranean. The Atlantic Bronze age was defined by a number of distinct regional centres of metal production, unified by a regular maritime exchange of some of their products. The major centres were southern England and Ireland, northwestern France, and northwestern Iberia.[1]
