You live in the territory of today's Most na Soči. Violent marauders have been visiting this area more and more. You are not accustomed to their weapons. They carry large oval shields and double-edged swords, which your spears and axes are difficult to defend against. In the last battle, five of your men died. This was a huge blow which served as a wake-up call. but it made you connect more strongly with each other, and you improved your defence. The farewell for your fellow men was majestic: five deceased men, five lavishly decorated stretchers, five pyres placed above the confluence.

In the territory of Central Europe, the Iron Age is called the Hallstatt Period and is named after the Hallstatt archaeological site in Austria. It was there that they discovered even more Iron Age graves than in Most na Soči. 


An interesting comparison: Around 4000 Iron Age graves have been found in Hallstatt, whilst almost 7000 have been found in Most na Soči - almost twice as many!

Did you know?

In the Iron Age, Most na Soči had around 500 inhabitants - about the same as there are today. Considering the number of Europe’s population at the time, Most na Soči could be compared with today’s Vienna. The findings of precious imported Greek and Italian tableware and even corals show that Most na Soči was indeed a thriving town at the time.
