iron age village


Ancient Celtic Coin From Paris

Very rare and perhaps the finest known specimen, this stater was struck in the late 2nd to early 1st century BC by the Celtic Parisii tribe. The obverse shows a male head (probably Apollo) surrounded by beaded filaments, a star amidst his swirling hair and a cross on his cheek. The reverse has a horse with a curvilinear design, thought to be a wing (like Pegasus).

The late Iron Age village of Lutetia, located at the site of modern-day Paris, was the capital of the Celtic Parisii tribe. Its main settlement was on the Ile de la Cité on the River Seine (Sequana). With the Suessiones, the Parisii participated in the general rising of Vercingetorix. He was the chieftain of the Arverni tribe, who united the Gauls in a revolt against Roman forces during the last phase of Julius Caesar’s Gallic Wars in 52 BC. During the Roman advance in 52 BC the Celts burned their city, and the bridges that linked it to the banks on either side, but after Roman dominion was established it was rebuilt and named Parisii.

Sera and Iron Bull
Sera and Iron Bull

Some people just wanted to hear Sera’s voice and of course there is a bit of Iron Bull in there. Cleaned the audio as much as I could without a proper music sample. Best quality when using headphones.

Also the cleaned up audio helped get a little more understanding of the dialogue, give or take some accuracy and words.

Iron Bull: Sera, I have a thought. Next time we run into a line of enemies, I’ll pick you up and throw you.

Sera: Get off.

Iron Bull: No this could work. I loft you off from a range, run by you, and fight. Mayhem ensues!

Sera: I can’t fly you daft tit.

Iron Bull: Think of the mayhem Sera. Mayhem!

Sera: I get a (?) something fierce.

Iron Bull: Look, you and Varric are the only ones small enough to (?) and (?) .

Sera: Well do some bloody press lifts.


At the end of the 19th century, storms ripped open the low cliffs at Jarlshof, near the southern tip of Shetland. They revealed an extraordinary settlement site embracing 4,000 years of human history. Upon excavation, the site was found to contain a remarkable sequence of stone structures – late Neolithic houses, Bronze-Age village, Iron-Age broch and wheelhouses, Norse longhouse, medieval farmstead, and 16th-century laird’s house.
