Bracers are thin, mostly rectangular pieces of pierced fine stone that occur primarily in inhumation graves of the Beaker era, mainly from the second half of the third millennium BCE. These objects are usually considered to be archers’ bracers or wrist-guards. This volume presents a detailed, illustrated study of all significant bracers known in England, Wales and Scotland, analysing their materials, manufacture and use.
