Bronze bracelet

Bronze bracelet from Kobarid

In 2010, archaeologists from the Tolmin Museum discovered the earliest and most unique traces of Celtic culture in the Soča Valley while monitoring construction work on Gregorčičeva street in Kobarid. Among the discoveries were horse skeletons, along with pieces of horse equipment, and most notably weapons, equipment and other objects dating from the late 4th or early 3rd century BC.

The finds were part of the equipment of Celtic warriors, but there were also some locally made items. Only a few pieces of jewellery were found at the site: among them, a figuratively decorated hollow bronze bracelet stands out, featuring a distinctive way of fastening. Two similar bracelets with the same type of fastening and decoration were also discovered in north-eastern France.
