The hand from Prêles, dated to the Middle Bronze Age, was discovered above Biel on the Plateau de Diesse. As one of the very first three-dimensional metallic representations of a part of the human body, this object is absolutely unique in Europe and perhaps even beyond. Made of bronze with a gold bracelet, this prestigious object is intriguing not only for its existence and location, but also for the level of craftsmanship and the metals used, especially the gold bracelet around the wrist. The objective of the study was to better understand the origin and use of the metals present.
