    I've always been fond of this Anglo-Saxon brooch from the Pentney Hoard. I think it is quite the exquisite example of ancient Germanic art.

    "The Bull Torc" (over six kilos of silver) found at Trichtingen, Germany, 2nd century BC. Quite fancy, whoever possessed such a piece must have been fabulously wealthy, probably due to lucrative trade between hinterland Celts and their Greek traders along the Rhone/Rhine trade routes.

    The Berlin Gold Hat is a Late Bronze Age artefact made of thin gold leaf. It served as the external covering on a long conical brimmed headdress, probably of an organic material. The Berlin Gold Hat is the best preserved specimen among the four known conical Golden hats known from Bronze Age Central Europe so far. Of the three others, two were found in southern Germany, and one in the west of France. All were found in the 19th and 20th centuries.

    It is generally assumed that the hats served as the insignia of deities or priests in the context of a sun cult that appears to have been widespread in Central Europe at the time. The hats are also suggested to have served astronomical/calendrical functions. A comparative study of the ornaments and techniques in conjunction with dateable finds suggests that it was made in the Late Bronze Age, circa 1,000 to 800 BC.

    My favorite is the Sutton Hoo helmet, but because that was already posted, I'll go with the Sutton Hoo belt buckle:

    Battersea Shield

    The Battersea Shield is one of the most significant pieces of ancient Celtic military equipment found in Britain. The Battersea Shield probably dates from the 1st century BC or early 1st century AD, though an earlier date is possible, and dates from as early as 350 BC have been suggested.


    Wallertheimer-Hündchen (“Wallertheim little dog”)

    In Wallertheim (Germany), up to the present day, a great many archaeological finds have been made, of which the Wallertheimer-Hündchen (“Wallertheim little dog”) might well be the best known. It is 2.1 cm long and 1.6 cm broad. It is made of blue glass covered with white threads and was recovered as part of a find of grave goods in a Celtic child’s grave of the late La Téne culture. The trove is dated to about the second century BC.


    Pillar of the Boatmen

    The Pillar of the Boatmen is a square-section stone bas-relief with depictions of several deities, both Gaulish and Roman. Dating to the first quarter of the 1st century AD, it originally stood in a temple in the Gallo-Roman civitas of Lutetia (modern Paris, France) and is one of the earliest pieces of representational Gaulish art to carry a written inscription.


    Pietroasele Treasure

    The Pietroasele Treasure found in Pietroasele, Buzău, Romania, is a late fourth-century Gothic treasure that included some twenty-two objects of gold, among the most famous examples of the polychrome style of Migration Period art.

    A Roman cavalry mask from Kalkriese, and most likely from The Battle of the Teutoburg Forest.

    During the four day battle in the ninth century A.D. the Germanic tribes avenged the brutal occupation of the Romans, under the Cherusci chieftain Arminius.
    Twenty-thousand Romans were wiped out.

    A timely reminder of what happens to "empires", when the Germanic people are pushed too far.
