Wow Roger,

Those are iconic, the visual of the mask is quite striking. The look is almost like something from a movie or TV show (Robinhoood) . These really create a powerful visual and one can easily imagine how intense the image must have been fo rthe people of that day.

These look very interesting. The Great Bascinet especially will be interesting as they are pretty rare as far as surviving pieces. Hopefully they are able to conserve as much as possible. Looks like they have a lot of corrosion.

Two new graves excavated last month in Uppsala area. Look very good as far as detail and they state probably not disturbed. Long list of items found.

Uppsala Grave Finds

Would love to see the items once cleaned up.

I knew just two from the Peninsula, the one from Pamplona, and another excavated from Portugal.

The barbute is more exceptional, unique piece, I even had my doubts about their use in Iberia due to the lack of mentions in sources or depictions...
