wonderful pic :)

Sigh all these ancient periods of European Bronze Age and early Iron are amazing, but they get too little show lights and they are often thought as the "meh poor barbarianZ little brothers" of the usual badass huge cultures, like Aegypt, Mesopotamic guys, those jerks of the Achaeans... XD 

One of the main misconceptions is that a part of those earliest ages in europe were "prehistoric", but that means "no written language", not "huga babooga me smashes stuff with biiig stoone!" 

Hallstatt, Urnfields, La Tene, Terramare, Villanova, all these cultures deserve much more attention  and hopefully findings XD (i dont know the quantity of hallstat, la tene and urnfields findings, but i bet it's still not enough... well the last two ones, here in Italy, surely have too few findings and not enough valued T_T)

Yeah, all attention is on Celts, Gauls and Germanic tribes along with Vikings. People see prehistoric age as something to be ashamed of. It`s too bad.  Just look at Etruscan- they are dusted by celto-gaulic propaganda of the modern world. Because of that I like to dig as much as possible about prehistory, different non existing north Mediterranean cultures. So I dig myself in archaeology, history and historical books. I`m especially happy when I can land hands and eyes on book which were written by ancient historians and writers. It is like drinking from the spring! :D There is so much to read and to learn! :D Sometimes I depict early middle ages as drained cultural existence (don`t get me wrong, it is one of my favorite historical periods). But, let us tell those people who underestimate ancient cultures: "If you so much like to glorify popular Celtic culture (with due respect to Celts) and all that, then consider this: in the time when Stonehenge was built as a slide of stones, in Knossos palace there were bath tubs and heated floors, toilets, water pipes and so on and so on..." Hm, yes, we could tell that. ;)

right :) and consider that Stonehenge wasn't even celtic, actually XD When they came it was done already. The misterious "megalithic culture" that someone loves to think as a sort of big european empire, something tied with the myth of Atlantis and such, but as usual it was more a mosaic of different peoples (the real mistery is that they vanished, in quite few time, like the Maya :O) And now that i think about it, but it's not european... no one talks anymore about Mohenjo-Daro, in the Indus Valley (now pakistan), one of the very first civilisations we know, and was already really advanced :D (i remember when i was a kid it was always present in those simplified history books with many figures, now it's like it disappeared >.<)

God, I wasn`t even seen the epics of my mistake. XD When I write in passion in comments I usually have results like this one. And you are right, everything became Eurocentric and few-main-cultures-centric....Too bad that knowledge is getting thinner concerning many ways to learn something via internet and books. I bought one old encyclopedia  few days ago. It is from 1984., Croatian edition. Although it is filled with communist propaganda in some chapters, it is great book of knowledge from where I learned so much things about everything in my childhood. I bought if out of pure nostalgia, and for my (God be praised) future kids. They will grow in different society and with that books I want them to see what was then and how things evolved. Not to feed them with retro propaganda, but to show differences from which they can learn. And that encyclopedia is very wide in knowledge and there are so much stuff that is not in modern books. May of the knowledge books are, as you say, "simplified" and that annoys me. It is almost a sacrilege to simplify knowledge when there is so much from the world, especially now. :D
