Scope note
Refers to the style and period associated with the Indo-European speakers of Germanic languages whose origins are obscure, but who inhabited southern Sweden, the Danish peninsula, and northern Germany during the late Bronze Age. In later centuries various groups of Germanic peoples migrated south and west at the expense of Celtic peoples and other inhabitants. The artistic styles of the Germanic peoples are often associated with portable objects, including weapons and personal ornaments.
