Giving this some more thought regarding the provenance of these artifacts, the fact they are made only of copper alloys not just consistent but common to the period they are ascribed to and not those found later, namely tin bronze or even iron, this speaks greatly towards an accurate dating. I can see why some would want to ignore such a find as it completely rewrites the history of metallurgy if not history itself. This was not something just invented one day but the product of a long tradition that is otherwise as missing as the lost-wax process that made them. What is clear is that this technology was not widely available and what is interesting about this hoard is that it is likely it was collected from a particular place and stashed there which begs the question where and what was it? There has to be more, not just artifacts, but relating to the culture that made them.
