The finds and features of several archaeological periods were uncovered in 2009 during the salvage excavations preceding the construction of the Hévíz bypass of Road 76. Of these, roughly 110 features forming five distinct clusters were part of a Middle Iron Age open settlement. The two moulds made from local sandstone were used for casting bronze buttons or loop buttons and small bow brooches. One of the two bivalve moulds was strongly worn, while the other was semi-finished. The bronze workshop located in the middle of the settlement was made up of two buildings and their immediate vicinity. The bronze bars and rods were raw materials awaiting processing. The richly diverse material can be dated to the later 6th century BC (Ha D2): one portion is typical for the period’s assemblages from Transdanubia, another can be linked to the Scythians, while a few artefacts reflect contact with the south-eastern Alpine region. The open settlement investigated at Alsópáhok is part of the Keszthely micro-region, where other sites yielding relics of bronze metallurgy have been found (Keszthely-Apátdomb, Keszthely-Fenékpuszta).
