Excavations at Kingsmead Quarry, Berkshire, England have revealed a highly complex archaeological landscape. 
This site has been used by humans since the last Ice Age, over a period of approximately 12,000 years. There is a limited amount of evidence for the Iron Age occupation of the site. The silver Iron Age coin shown above is an example of such evidence. 
This coin represents a silver half unit, and likely dates from the mid to late part of the third quarter of the first century BC.

Bronze Age Diadem, Urnfield culture, Carpathian Basin region, Circa 1200-800 BC





It is not clear precisely how this headpiece would have been worn, though stone sculptures from an earlier period suggest that the spiral terminals would have been in the back, pointing downward. Diadems, which are extremely rare, were probably worn exclusively by women and children of high rank.
