    When a nation forgets her skill in war, when her religion becomes a mockery, when the whole nation becomes a nation of money-grabbers, then the wild tribes, the barbarians drive in... Who will our invaders be? From whence will they come?

    They are large spearheads, but they look even bigger because of the perspective.

    Germanic tribes?

    I think it's Germans of the late period (1st BC). They are really good, especially the shield designs. But why the umbones are "damaged"?
    What kind of sources use the shield designs?

    Alexandra Elbakyan. Even in my country, Switzerland, we cannot afford the access to all the publishers material. Sci-hub and Library Genesis help thousands of researchers in the world. Support them.

    I think that looks more like Alpine Phallanx or Helveti than German.

    I don't think, because of the shield designs. Then I do not recognize specific characteristics of the Helvetii.

    Edit: I think they comes from Netherlands or Alsace.

    The designs resemble a terracotta vase, found in Basel, but the resemblance is very slight. And by analyzing the find of Vindonissa, I doubt that these designs are used on shields.

    I suggest the area of Manching as origin.

    Okay. Thus I make a final choice, I choose the Tigurii and the Noricum tribes and I await the final response.

    I wanted to say the Germans in the Netherlands, not the Belgae.
