Clasp made of bronze that was found on an iron making site in Sangis, a village outside the city of Kalix. The clasp has parallells in the Volga-Kama-area near the Ural Mountains in modern day Russia. It shows the extensive contact network the community in what is today the region of Norrbotten in northern Sweden had during the Early Iron Age. The clasp is dated to 200 B.C. up unto 400 A.D.
