Learn the Untold Secrets of Gold Hats of Bronze Age

Spread the love

Four golden cone-shaped objects have been excavated at Bronze Age sites over the last 170 years. The one found in the central west of France is known as the “Avanton of Vienne” and was accidentally discovered when a tree uprooted in Avanton, France, in 1844.

Another one was discovered in 1835 in a region between northern Switzerland and the southern Rhineland of Germany and is named the “Golden Hat of Schifferstadt,” also known as “golden hat of the boat-operator city.”

The Ezelsdorf-Buch cone was excavated on the south hill of Brentenberg. Bavaria, in the spring of 1953. Finally the “Berlin cone” generally known as the “citizen of Berlin hat”.

All four conical hats resemble each other in their form, symbolism, and technique. All four ceremonial hats have been hammered out of a single piece of gold. Twenty different punches, six ornamental wheels, and a decorative comb were used.

Golden Hat of Schifferstadt

Golden Hat of Schifferstadt

The golden hat of Schifferstadt is the oldest and the first found, in 1835, among the four. The artifact weighs about 350g, is 29.6cm in height, and has a diameter of 18cm. This hat is dated back to 1400–1300 BC.

Avanton Gold Cone

The Avanton cone

This golden hat was found in the central west of France is known as the “Avanton of Vienne” and was accidentally discovered when a tree uprooted in Avanton, France, in 1844.

The object was damaged. A comparison with other finds suggests that a part (the brim) is missing. The remaining part of the Avanton cone is 55 cm long and weighs 285 g. It is dated back to 1000–900 BC.

The disks and circles are the most important motifs in this hat. There is a ten-pointed star crown at the top of the cone and 154 horizontal decorative Zones extending to the base. In the 120th zone, a frieze of twenty-one eight-spoked wagon wheels encircles the cone to transmit the power of the sun to the wearer.

The Ezelsdorf-Buch cone is 88.3cm tall, weighs 310 grams and made of a thin material 0.78mm thick. This artifact is dated back to 1000–900 BC.

It is really wonderful to know how the artist could draw so minute details in the figures which were inspired and associated with multiple cultures.

Berlin Golden Hat

Golden Hat – Berlin

The Berlin Gold Hat (cone) consists of a hollow, pointed cone 74.5cm in height, fashioned of hammered gold with no joints. The border, 5.3cm 10cm high cap.

The border is further reinforced by wrapping its rim around a bronze ring (30.7 x 29.5 in size) of twisted metal. With a height of 74.5 cm and an average thickness of 0.06 mm, the cone, together with the stabilizing bronze base and brim reinforcements, weighs 490 grams. and the base of the cone has an oval diameter (20.3, 17.5cm) and the decorative patterns on the underside of the brim are positive.

The calendrical function of the Berlin Gold Hat

Astrological Purpose

The ancient historic gold cones are more than 3,000 years old, made of paper-thin gold, and originally had borders. They vary from 60cm to 90cm in height. Each is decorated with circles and other motifs representing the sun and the moon. The sun and moon decorations suggest astronomical importance.

As mentioned in the book God’s Machine. From Stonehenge to Crop Circles, the 1739 sun and half-moon symbols, representing the nineteen-year cycle of the moon, match the Medtronic cycle invented by Meton, the Greek astronomer in 432 BC, 500 years after the gold cone was made.

The Metonic cycle is composed of 235 lunar months. At the end of the nineteen-year-cycle, the full moon appears on the same day of the year as it was at the beginning of the cycle.

Alternate Theory

The size and decoration of these cones are completely matching the lost conical devices in Stonehenge and other Neolithic sites. The device was able to generate dagger-like mega lights to its over-rounding stones for power. These 75cm high mysterious gold cones are small enough to stand on the roof box platform of Newgrange.

Its pointed head with the star-like ornament suggests it was an advanced transmitter. Concentric circles of microwaves were generated when it was fully charged. Similar cones have been excavated around the same region. For example, one was unearthed in the early seventeenth century in Ireland and another one (the “Gold Cape of Mold”) was unearthed in Wales in 1831


How could the Bronze Age people acquire such complicated astronomical skills? Where did their knowledge come from? Why did they put the message on a cylindrical one? Judging from the details of these motif designs, we could say the architect investigated the cone before replicating another one. Rather than predicting the movement of the sun and moon, these gold cones may serve a more practical function.

The real function of these artifacts is still not known. Some suggestions have been made that include, vibrations, calendars, containers, objects of unknown function, crowns, and a device atop a pole. Some experts claim that these mysterious objects originally functioned as ceremonial hats or decorative caps for the powerful king-priests in the Bronze Age, probably a divine object allowing the master to look into the future. The theory has ceremonial caps that have widespread acceptance.
