21st August 06
I have now posted images on the Wikipedia Fibulae and
Ancient Brooches article:
If you click on the images to get the larger view you also get the
full description with identification notes on the fibulae.
Any comments/questions would be welcome.
Bron: Feel free to take the images. I have updated the text
though, and have a few other changes to do. Some change dates or
add new info. So I would wait till next week to take the text, or
take a new version next week, for your site.
In the meanwhile I have simple linked to the Wiki pages
Finally, to all: I have started a Fibulae and Ancient Brooches
Yahoo group. However, I will spend the next few weeks taking and
loading a bunch of images on to it, posting some other info, etc.
Then when it is more usefull I will pass the address around and see
if we can kick start it.
Will definitely link to that as well!
My goal would be to create an online photo gallery with ID notes.
Unlike most of the crappy descriptions on ebay we could compile
notes from various studies and reports (Jobst, Bohme, Soupault,
etc.) on find locations, dates and contexts. The controversial IDs
could be debated. Unknown items put up for identification. A
bibiliography of fibulae related books and articles complied, etc.
Thanks, it's looking good.
Here is another quite good website on brooches.
THE REAL ROMAN BOAT BROOCH TYPE!!
On these pages you will find information and pics of the numerous fake "Roman" galley brooches.
But these are genuine:
This is a genuine type.
Scroll down that page ,and you'll find drawings of two other ship brooches to compare.
The top image here which was old on eBay seems authentic by style, size and appearance but the rarity of this type leaves me very sceptical. But sold at that price I still regret not having bid on it.
About the type - it's a Mediterranean transport ship, not a war ship/ galley the galley
This is the Neuburg page about the type:
This one raises the obvious question.
Here is Renate's pdf on the galley fakes.
Just click on the link below the image.
With thanks to Marcus Prell.
