      Vaška situla, 500 pr.Kr. The Vače situla is a bronze pail, 23.8 cm high, which was uncovered in an Iron Age burial mound at Vače in 1882 by a local inhabitant, and was later included in the collections of the National Museum of Slovenia in Ljubljana. Such pails were popular metal vessels in the early Iron Age, and were also excellent media for art and narrative

    The Trundholm Sun Chariot is late bronze age artifact discovered in Denmark. It is attributed to the Urnfield culture(1300 BC-750 BC) was a late bronze age culture from central Europe.

    The art style is known as the 'La Tène' style and was used by Celtic peoples throughout Europe.  Art motifs include a range of curvilinear patterns and stylised animal heads.  These motifs were used to decorate sword scabbards, spearheads and personal ornaments such as brooches (fibula).  Art can also be found on stones such as that from Derrykeighan, County Antrim.

    Iron for weapons and domestic items in Europe only started in the following Hallstatt culture. Widespread use of iron for tools only occurred in the later Iron Age La Tene culture. Jess Liu zheng.wikipedia
