This beautiful copper alloy diadem was created in what archaeologists call the Hallstatt Culture, a European Iron Age culture. It was made circa 750–500 BCE. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which owns the diadem, isn’t clear about precisely where it was discovered, but it’s from the Carpathian region.
