The golden age of cast iron

From the golden age of cast iron is the main hall of the archeological Museum of Ireland in Dublin build between 1856-1857. For lovers of jewelry a must by the grandiose display of jewels from the beginning of mankind until the middle ages. All preserved remarkable well in the peat that covered more the 80% of Ireland and found over the years.

Here as example so called bossed and "thistle" brooches of the pre-viking penannular types.

Here a detail of the fence on the first floor. One for Good Fences here.
Yes this museum is worth a visit.
