Socketed bronze implements found in Ross-Shire and Skye

These two socketed bronze implements were found in Ross-Shire and Skye. According to the 'Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland', Vol VIII, 1871 (from where the illustration is taken) the tool on the left was found 'on the farm of Wester Ord on the Invergordon property'. However, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland states there is 'no Ord or Wester Ord farm in the parish of Rosskeen and it is probable that the discovery was made around Ord Farm in the neighbouring parish of Urray'.

The implement on the right was found on Skye in 1849. According to the 'Proceedings' the most probable use for the tools would seem to be scraping out the interior of canoes and other large vessels
