Celtiberian Bronze Helmet, 4th century BC

This helmet was hammered from thin metal and decorated with repousse designs. Plain bands crisscross and encircle it, dividing the helmet into quadrants. A square opening has been cut away in the front for the face. Each quadrant contains a motif of three schematically rendered men beneath a “sun circle” ringed with dots. These lively human figures with their arms raised and one foot lifted off the ground seem to be engaged in an ecstatic dance. Dances such as these are described by Roman writers who observed the bellicose customs of the Celtiberians. Two projections along the transversal band of the helmet indicate that it once included an attached ornament or crest.

The Celtiberians were Celtic-speaking people of the Iberian Peninsula in the final centuries BC. These tribes spoke the Celtiberian language. Extant tribal names include the Arevaci, Belli, Titti, Lusones, and Berones. Celtiberians were celebrated for their fine weapons and armor.

I really really hope we will see more scenes with Beron. I was so excited to see him but they only gave him like, 5 seconds screen time? Such a shame.. I love how he was included in the book version of the fight

Completely agree with your there, my friend. Beorn was (and remains) one of my favorite characters from the book and ‘Queer Lodgings’ was one of my favorite chapters in The Hobbit. I was really excited when they cast Mikael Persbrandt as Beorn because he is such an amazing actor. 

I was so disappointed we got to see so little of him because the few minutes he was on screen were so wonderful! Mikael absolutely nailed the character. Beorn’s actions during the battle of the five armies were so valiant and poignant, he rallied the Dwarves/Elves/Men against the Orcs when it seemed rather hopeless. 

It would have been a beautiful, dramatic moment if they had kept that part from the book in the film, but alas, we were given merely 5 seconds! Hopefully that changes in the Extended Edition!

Berón de Astrada es una ciudad argentina, cabecera del departamento homónimo, provincia de Corrientes, a 145 kilómetros de la Ciudad de Corrientes. El municipio incluye las islas Caygüé, Dos Hermanas, y Entre Ríos.

Originalmente la zona de Berón de Astrada se hallaba en la jurisdicción del curato de Itatí, existiendo en el lugar una estancia. Luego el sacerdotefranciscano, Pedro Bernardo Sánchez creó en el lugar una reducción indígena que se conoció como San Antonio de Itatí. El departamento Itatí se subdividió dando origen al departamento de San Antonio de Itatí, nombre que luego sería cambiado al actual de Berón de Astrada.
