Résumé / Abstract

Nine files and three hammersheads were examided by metallography. The tools, all or most of wich dates to the later pre-Roman Iron age, are from four different sites in Somerset Glastonbury Lake Village, Meare Village East, Meare Village West, and Ham Hill. Carbon compositions were found to be generally low, though three tools comprised high-carbon steel in areas examined. Six files and two hammersheadshad been quenched. The results are compared with those from Iron Age tools examined previously from other sites in Britain
