Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Cycladic - Refers to the style of artistic production in the Cycladic archipelago between circa 3500 or 3000 and 1100 BCE though some authors limit the period from circa 2500 to 1600 BCE. Works of art include pottery and especially marble figures possibly of religious importance, rendered in elegant yet simple, schematic, attenuated forms, depicting mainly nude females of the folded-arm type.
  • Iron Age - Refers to the period and culture associated with the third age in the Three Age system developed by Christian Jürgensen Thomsen in 1836. Iron Age culture typically developed from the Bronze Age at the point when the qualities of iron were exploited, particularly through carburization, in the manufacture of tools, weapons, and implements. It developed at different times in various parts of the world, first appearing in the Middle East and southeastern Europe around 1,200 BCE, and in China around 600 BCE. In the Americas, it did not develop from the Bronze Age but was introduced to Stone Age cultures by European explorers.
  • rim sherds - Fragments of a ceramic or glass vessel from just below the rim.
