Different images of the Late Scandinavian Bronze Age
For sometime I have been collecting images about this period as well as reading about it. Here are some I found recently-
An old representation which I think might have been used for propaganda purposes.
One familiar to many of us from the “warriors and weapons “ book.
Two pictures from a Danish book of the 1950s. The girl showing an ancient costume is so fifties looking that it made me smile.
A relatively modern imagining of the period above and finally below a depiction of the period from a cartoon history of Denmark-
Different images of a fascinating society possibly saying as much about when they were made as they do about ancient times.
