    From the Bronze Age until the Middle Ages

    Recently, near a wooded heights, I've discovered traces of three overlapping historical periods :
    a.) Middle Bronze Age period (XIV-XVI centuries B.C.) - A bronze deposit consists of a spearhead and a decorated disc-butted ax, which they were probably hidden by a Bronze Age warrior, and probably had ritual role.The objects were placed side by side and were discovered quite difficult and carefully to avoid damaging them, because they were covered half of their length by a deformed root of a beech.In Romania they were found very few such axes decorated.They were made and decorated using the lost wax method.For those who are interested, posted a series of photos of the objects, including details of decoration, some of the images being edited size in millimeters, for a better understanding of sizes.
    b.) Roman period (II-III centuries A.D.) - Knife blades, iron keys, iron brooch, nails, bronze fragment, Hadrianus (117-138 A.D.) bronze sestertius, mint in Rome 134-138 A.D. : HADRIANVS AVG COS III P P, laureate and draped bust right / ADVENTVI AVG HISPANIAE, Hadrian, standing right, raising right hand, facing Hispaniae, standing left, holding patera in right hand, branch in left hand; altar and sacrificial victim between them. SC in exergue.
    c.) Middle Ages (XVII-XVIII centuries A.D.) - Spurs, arrowheads of various types, wood processing tools, bit, sickle, buckles, engraved bronze ring that belonged to a knight.

    Speechless. You rarely see bronze age axes that nice decorated. That one is Banner worth alone, not to mention the ring! You did well again. Big congrats!
    I send a vote for that beautiful 3500 year old piece of Bronze Age workmanship.

    That is in beautiful shape and the ancient workmanship is superb. It also has my vote. Great post and thanks for letting us see it. Looks like a page out of National Geographic!

    Never seen that type of Bronze Age Axe, but if that doesn't make banner we all need to give up & go home. I have had the year of Bronze Age 'bits', more than any other year, but I'm still looking for my first complete item. Unlike Cru'Dad who has a whole axe to his name.

    My votes going in now......

    I don't think any of them had made their way to England. This a type most common in the Hungary/Romania area. Some of them made it to Bavaria, but i've never seen such a nicely decorated piece.

    All extremely fine discoveries, but the axe is really one of the best things I've ever seen. It's beautiful, definitely a museum quality piece. The ring is pretty amazing too. Going to vote banner...

    The vote is in on these amazing finds. It's one of those postings where the eyes are riveted to the page over and over again looking at the beautiful pieces of history. I can't make up my mind which one is the nicest, the axe or the ring, both are exceptional. Thank you for posting up it made my day just looking at them.

    Oh my... that axe is one of the most beautiful pieces of Bronze Age workmanship I've ever seen. To say it's museum quality is an understatement, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it fetched 3,000-5,000 at auction, maybe more as it's such a high-end piece i really don't have a good sense. That spearhead is lovely too, and looks like a 250-350.00 piece. Dang I'm jealous, really amazing finds.

    Definitely voting banner on that pair, absolutely killer treasures you have there.

    (Nice sestertius BTW )
