  5. Hi,thanks! Solar cults prevailed throughout Europe at that time. The ax was most likely closely related to them. All shapes and sizes are found all over Europe. It is believed that the ax was of great importance in the cult ceremonies, and the origin of these practices most likely comes from somewhere in the Carpathian zone.
  6. Thanks! Bronze ceremonial ax from Krottenthal, Germany, 1300 - 1100 B.C. The two magnificent weapons belong to the earliest discoveries kept at the Archäologische Staatssammlung (Archaeological State Collection). In c.1784, a farmer in Krottenthal in Lower Bavaria dug up and sold some weapons. Quite obviously, the weapons belonged to a depot find, but most of the pieces probably went to the furnace. At least it was possible to save two pieces. The axe was brought to the Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften (Bavarian Academ

  11. For a long time I have been collecting materials on the construction of these .... interesting things from the early era of bronze from Europe. In English-language literature they are called halberds, in German-language Stabdolch-staffdagger, in Polish-language scepter dagger, and disputes about their purpose continue to this day.
