The Berlin Golden Hat is a tall, conical artifact made of hammered gold and decorated with astronomic symbols including the moon. It dates back to 1000-800 BC and was most like used ceremonially. It is possible that it was also used as a calendar: the symbols on the artefact would have permitted the determination of dates or periods in both lunar and solar calendars. It was acquired in1996 as a single find without provenance. (and alas no provenance! rw)
