Historical Period

A significant Iron Age site was discovered in 1857 at La Tène, in modern-day Switzerland. The La Tène culture flourished between 450 BCE and 100 CE thoughout most of central Europe.

The people traded widely over their world; artifacts with influences from Greece and Ireland have been found in elite burials.

It is suggested that the culture was driven underground and then subsumed by Roman expansion.

Inspiration

The original excavation in 1857 at La Tène site yielded over 40 swords; in total, 166 have been recovered. These finds inspired the creation of these reproductions.
