- Faces fascinate, especially those of the past. Facial representations moved early on in the interest of collectors and museums. In the Bronze and Iron Age they are mainly found on grave vessels. This book contains the current research results on facial urns. The reader expects in this richly illustrated volume an insight into the life of a society nearly 3,000 years ago. Who was the important woman and what role did the old man play? We get to know children and warriors and learn about trade and exchange networks, which even then led across Europe. Face recognition and the importance of the face play an essential role in the investigations.
- Includes bibliographical references (pages 97-99).
