PREHISTORIC ART

Christian Jürgensen Thomsen developed a three age system, dividing the European and Mediterranean Pre and Early history into Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. According to this system, the Bronze Age is the period of history during which metal objects were mostly forged from bronze. In Central Europe, this middle period of the three age system extends from 2200 to 800 BC and is divided into three eras named after the respective prevalent burial rites: crouched inhumations, tumuli and urn fields.

From the beginning, our gallery’s assortment included important objects from the Bronze Age and the following Hallstatt culture (Iron Age).
Among other things, we were able to broker a unique cap helmet from the urn field culture (complete with cheek plates) to a private collection and a large pendant decorated with wheels and suns of the Hungarian Piliny culture to a national archeology collection.

Furthermore, thanks to our collaboration, the second largest hoard of vessels from the late Bronze Age in Central Europe, the hoard of Altenfließ near Brandenburg, is now in the possession of a museum, more than one hundred years after being discovered.
