Abstract: At the present time the Burmese Metal Ages are still not well identified. But in the last few years a French-Burmese associated research project has studied Bronze and Iron Age cemeteries in the Samon Valley, Upper Burma. The study of the bronze axes excavated in this region follows an attempt to classify and make an inventory of the Burmese axes actually known. These results, mostly unpublished, synthesize the present knowledge we have about typology and production. This research helped to identify specificities peculiar to this region.
