Bronze pin from Verschiez (Ollon) - 2000 BC3D Model
This exceptionally large engraved pin and seven other bronze objects were donated to the Museum before 1855 by Victor Deladoey, a bookseller in Aigle. All these pieces were discovered in 1835 “in the tombs of Verschiez, between Aigle and Ollon, while clearing an uncultivated area several hundred feet above the valley”. Of this vast necropolis of Verschiez Vaud. Switzerland), made of “several hundred tombs”, practically nothing remains, apart from the few objects deposited in the Museum. In the Chablais, as in Valais, the archaeological sites have paid a heavy price for the development of vineyards undertaken in the 19th century. This type of Bronze Age pin, which is very rare, is characteristic of the “Rhone Culture” in Chablais and central Valais. Length 31 cm. Scan by onsitu.
