Chronology

The location of the settlements remained the same even during the Bronze Age (1800-500 B.C.) substantiated by the findings from the settlements, stone-cist graves and early fields near Jõelähtme and Saha-Loo.

During the Late Bronze Age (about 800 years B.C.) the fortified settlement in Iru became the most significant centre near Tallinn until about 500 years B.C. when it was eventually abandoned.
