Great day hunting archaeology around Alyth with Jane and Derry. Fabulous intact #souterrain, #barryhill #ironage #hillfort #pictish #symbolstone etc.
Another video of another pig , in this instance it is a new mother Iron Age pig, having an alternative place to give birth . So, she has had a house put over her head , food and water provided. 'If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain' 😃My working day has extended by extra two hours.#happyfarming @porcuspeople #freetoroam #rarebreed #pigs #newborn #piglets #ironage #lifelessordinary #todmorden #westyorkshire

Iron Age head from about 1000 BC. It’s cool to see such ancient sculpture from Britain.

I wrote this song about the way I saw my life going forward. I now see it as what my life could have been. It's awful that some people depend on another person's presence to keep them going in life. And if you make a mistake that causes them to slip away, you feel such an insignificance to your daily life. There a void that swallows everything you ever loved. You wish you could turn back time, but all you can do is keep your hope as high as skyscrapers. 
This song is called Skyscrapers.

I want to start a project of completely different style than my normal. It will consist of ambient tracks and a setting involved with no context other than the beauty of the image and the music that brings the image to life. For now, all my inspiration is just insignificance.

Fødselsdagsgaver fra @liriheu på @vikingeborgen_trelleborg I dag. En god dag med mange flotte ting, som jeg nemt kunne have brugt 1000 vis af kroner på. Mjøden er fra @valravnen_mjoed
Og den smager helt vildt godt!

Went for a bop around the museum earlier, one of my favourite wandering places. 
Heres a close up of the Tara Brooch, an 8th century silver-gilted annular brooch. Just look at that beautiful gold filigree panelling, recalling of of the La Tene style during the Iron Age.

Mølen in Nevlunghavn, Larvik is an incredible pebble beach😃 Many stone burial mounds from bronze and iron age is also on the location. Really worth a visit👍

J e r n a l d e r g å r d e n | Form and function. Beautifully ornamented replicas of Iron Age fire steels. Designed to be worn on the belt, it's interesting to see how not only functional considerations were made in the design of these vital everyday objects, but even aesthetical. A proof of their significance. A fire steel was used by pinching the ornamental side between your fingers while striking the straight side hard against a piece of flint. Getting a spark is very easy, the challenge lies in sustaining it in order to turn it into a flame. A type of fungus that grows on trees, called 'knuskkjuke' in Norwegian, was used for this purpose. It is extremely dry and immediately starts glowing when in contact with a spark. The glowing piece of fungus could then be used to light for instance dry birch bark, and blown into a flame. The name of this fungus is actually the origin of the Norwegian expression 'knusktørr', meaning very dry.

I also got some new stuff from @iron_age_guitar today. Yea, the one on the right is brass. One of the easiest ways to get a good "heavier" sounding tone is using a metal pick. I've been using one that's all bent up I've had for like 7 years but luckily Iron Age came through with this one.

¡Buenos días!

Estamos ultimando los detalles finales para el comienzo de la II Campaña de excavaciones arqueológicas del Proyecto Arqueológico Bursau-Borja en el Cerro del Esquilar, en el año que se cumplen 40 años de las excavaciones de 1978 del equipo del Museo de Zaragoza y el Centro de Estudios Borjanos Centro de estudios Borjanos dirigido por D. Isidro Aguilera, D. José Ignacio Royo y D. Juan Paz.

En esta ocasión y continuando con el repaso bibliográfico a la historiografía de las investigaciones en la ciudad de Bursau/Borsao os traemos un interesante trabajo relacionado con la presencia de cerámicas itálicas importadas de época romano-republicana en Bursau. El estudio al que haremos referencia en esta entrada fue realizado por D. José Ignacio Royo Guillen con título “La cerámica campaniense en Bursau” publicado en el segundo numero de los Cuadernos de Estudios Borjanos  en 1978. En este estudio se analiza un lote cerámicas “campanienses” en su denominación antigua por su origen en la Campania (Italia) y que en la actualidad ha sido sustituido por el término “barnices negros”. En este interesante estudio se presentan 25 individuos de los tipos A, B y C, con una cronología entre los siglos II-I a.C

Fornlämningar vid Rocklunda.
(post nr. 2)
-
Second post on Rocklunda continuing from the last one. This one will be about the large standing stone (rest sten or "bautasten") marking a grave and the three burial mounds by the road Norrleden. Standing stones came into use in Sweden during the Iron Age (550BCE-1050CE) and are very similar in shape to many runestones but just lack the runic inscription. The practice of using burial cairns (gravrösen) from my last post went out of fashion and the way people buried their dead changed. Strangely, burial mounds however were a way of burial used in the old Bronze Age and not used in the later Bronze Age but came back again with the Iron Age. In Rocklunda there have been finds from the Viking Age including spears and swords.
-
There is a standing stone made of granite raised on top of a small hill overlooking the soccer field. Its dimensions are 1.7 meters high, 1.15 m wide and 0.5 meters thick. I placed my 2 liter water bottle in front of it to give an idea of its size. When archaeologists excavated under it they found the bones of a man from the Younger Iron Age (Yngre Järnåldern). If you travel a bit northeast where the nature park meets the road busy road Norrleden you will see three burial mounds in a small forested area just next to the street. They are all approximately 6 meters in diameter and 0.6 meters in height placed in a row but a bit hard to photograph because of all the vegetation.

Domarring.

These stone circles are called "Dommaringar" ("Judgement rings") and can most commonly be found in southern scandinavia. 
They are believed to be cremation-graves because they often contain ashes but relatively few items. The graves have been dated to the early iron age and the stone circles where probably built at the same time.

The name comes from the medieval use of these rings as a place where the "Thing" could assemble. The "Thing" where and assembly of free people  presided over by a lawspeaker ("lagman" in swedish) and where important matters could me discussed and settled.
The judges would sit atop each of the stones and because the circles most often contained an odd number of stones the votes would not be even.
This use is mentioned in some medieval sources but mostly stems from folklore and tradition. 
There is no evidence that suggest that they where used for Things during the iron age. 
However, in some places the tradition live on to as late as the 16th century and in Vad parish in Västergötland they where used for assemblies as late as the 19th century.
