A Succulent Harvest

Grey shades, dark color tones need not always be gloomy. The dewy purple color of the late gifts of nature bears with it the aroma of a sugary treat. In the early frosty haze, everything is covered in a delicate matt, which suddenly enters into competition with flashes of sunny dew. Such juicy, sweet tempting berries. A handful of blackberries which will turn your skin purple before you eat them. The berries are still bluish on the bush, but almost black in a cake. You can also find other variants in your garden; black currants, aronia, plums. Roses flower in the spring and you can look forward to the harvest.

Archaeological findings have indicated the existence of significant centres of princely power to the north of Prague, especially at the site of the Levý Hradec thf ortress, in the 10 century. It is traditionally designated as the seat of the first historically documented prince, i.e. Bořivoj I. He had the oldest Christian church in Bohemia built there. Saint Adalbert was also elected as the second Bishop of Prague there in 982.

An Early-Evening Impression

You will find a wide range of shades, tones, moods and feelings during the sunsets of the first days of autumn. The sky tinged with blue and a hint of grey with frosty light shades. The horizon coloured with pink transitions into pure orange, mixed with dark carnelian and nocturnal purple. The last reminder of light and warmth, radiant rays cut through the canvass. The picture is mounted in ripe green.

In September 2017, an exceptional bronze vessel was discovered in a sand dune in the municipality of Kladina in the Pardubice District during archaeological work. Its origins have been dated to the Hallstatt period about 3 thousand years ago. Similar vessels have also been found in Hungary. The independent locations of all five vessels indicates that they were used for votive purposes, as gifts or as sacrifices during a ceremony. A hidden decoration of migratory birds pulling a sun disk has been discovered under the layers of deposits.

Rainbow Coins

Pleasant Occasion

You have found a treasure; round pieces of gold. You went for a walk after the rain, when the air smelled so fresh. The dark clouds faded away on the horizon. You set off into the forest. The brown roots glimmered and overlapped, the trees threw long grey shadows. You entered a ploughed field and suddenly something glittered in a furrow with a trickle of water; a handful of small round pieces of metal.

Some small coins were found on the ground after a heavy rainfall. Still wet, they glistened in the sun and thus were dubbed rainbow coins. They were staters, Celtic stg olden coins which were probably minted in the 3 - 1 century BC in the territory of the former La Tene culture in Central France, the Rhineland, Bavaria and Austria all the way up to Hungary. They were made from gold dust smelted into the shape of small bowls with a relief created using stamping die.

Gracious Warmth

Winter has begun, so you wear warm colors. Wrap yourself up in a delicate, soft felt blanket. Mix shades of old pink with grey fog, with a sweet strawberry taste and with delicious chocolate tones of pralines. Try choosing a dark, rich coffee shade and lay it next to a delicate, weak hint of orange crème.

Archaeological discoveries from the Bronze Age are typically made at barrow burial sites. The raised barrow earthworks are still apparent in the forests today. The base consists of a stone structure. Over time, burials were made of skeletons, cremated remains or urns in the period ranging from the Early Bronze Age through to the Middle Bronze Age and on to the Late Bronze Age. Numerous burials with varying accoutrements were usually placed beneath the earthworks. The richest were home to bronze, gold and amber jewelry and bronze tools and weapons.
