The 'Nebra Sky Disk' with two bronze swords and axe heads
uncovered from Saxon-Anhalt, Germany and dated to 1600 BC.
This incredible discovery of the oldest depiction of the universe
was almost lost to the black market.
Dated to 1600 BCE, this bronze disk has a diameter of 32cm
(about the size of a vinyl LP) and weighs around 2 kg.
It is patinated blue-green and embossed with gold leaf symbols
which appear to represent a crescent moon, the sun (or perhaps
a full moon), stars, a curved gold band, interpreted as a sun boat,
and a further gold band on the edge of the disk which probably
represents one of the horizons. - source = Museum of Artifacts

Ornamental knives from the Mycenean culture of ancient Greece. These
were found in shaft graves. These blades are of solid siver with gold
art decorations. Only one knife has a haft. The other knives have rivets
to attach hafts.
The silver blades are corroded but the gold decorations are still in great
shape. Why doesn't the gold corrode, too?

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am one of the Brittanies here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lily and I are American Brittanies, both
rescues, and both South Dakota natives. When we're not
helping out on the site, we patrol the property,
chase rabbits and squirrels, say hi to the kids at the school
playground and the dogs next door, rack out on our beds, ask
for treats, and hang out with our humans!
