A Sögel-Wohlde sword from the Oude Diep stream valley near Echten (prov. of Drenthe) Metal detectorist Jeroen Kruizinga in his spare time monitored the construction works for ecological improvements undertaken in the Oude Diep stream valley near Hoogeveen. Within a confined area, he there recovered the blade of a lavishly decorated Sögel-Wohlde-type sword datable to the MBA-A, and a few days later he found the missing tip of that same blade – as well as a bronze hilt cap and curved bronze fragment of lenticular cross-section (either bracelet or bent rapier). The evident bends of the Sögel-Wohlde-sword blade suggest that it – like the East Rudham dirk – was deliberately bent prior to deposition. Other finds of Bronze Age metalwork, such as a bracelets and a socketed axe, suggest that the Oude Diep stream valley served as a long-term deposition site throughout the Middle and Late Bronze Age.
