VALCAMONICA:
Borno boulder n. 4

(Copper Age) 
 
 






SHORT DETAILS - BREVI NOTE

  Site: Borno (BS), now at Naquane National Park (Capo di Ponte)


Subject: Remedellian kind daggers


Period: Copper Age


Description: the three daggers show a triangular blade and a half-moon shaped handle. It is a very clear depiction of an archaeological object, the same that was found in the Remedello di Sotto (and also Spilamberto) necropolis phase 2 (2800-2400 BC calibrated). The representation of weapons in a precise composition, like daggers, axes and halberds is a distinctive point in Copper Age rock art. Another point is that the figures have been always engraved on vertical surfaces.


To notice: the Remedellian kind daggers are depicted in most Alpine Copper Age stelae and engraved menhirs, like Aosta, Sion, Valtellina, Valcamonica, Trentino-Alto Adige ones, and also outside from the Alps, like in Lunigiana. So they represent a kind of fossil-guide for this period.    Sito: Borno (BS), ora al Parco Nazionale di Naquane (Capo di Ponte)






Soggetto: pugnali di tipo Remedelliano


Periodo: etÓ del Rame


Descrizione: i tre pugnali mostrano una lama triangolare ed un'impugnatura semilunata. Si tratta della chiara rappresentazione di un oggetto archeologico, lo stesso trovato nelle necropoli di Remedello di Sotto (fase 2, 2800-2400 a.C. calibrata) e Spilamberto. La rappresentazione di armi (pugnali, asce e alabarde) in ordinata composizione Ŕ una caratteristica dell'arte rupestre dell'etÓ del Rame. Un'altra caratteristica Ŕ l'utilizzo di superfici verticali.

Da notare: i pugnali di tipo Remedelliano sono raffigurati in molte stele e menhir alpini dell'etÓ del Rame, come ad Aosta, a Sion, in Valtellina, Valcamonica, Trentino-Alto Adige, e anche al di fuori delle Alpi, come in Lunigiana, costitutendo quindi una specie di fossile guida.
