    Default Scordisci

    Hello everyone! Don't mind me, I'm just posting finds related to the Scordisci in hopes of seeing one or two units in the near future. Carry on with your daily affairs.

    1. From the Ruma county museum - I have 30ish images. These are the nicest. Will update with info as soon as I get it.

    Swords, spears, a scabbard and a scabbard fragment, an umbo.

    Disclaimer - there is a second dating that puts this last spear into the earlier Hallstatt period. I am having trouble believing it. It could be just a documenting error. Anyhow, I leave it to wiser heads.
