Wonderful "Kurala" iron age reproductions

I´m staying in my parents house for a couple of nights and while cleaning up the basement I found a couple of very well made iron age reproductions that I wanted to share with you. I suspect that they are part of a group made for Heureka the Finnish Science Centre for the "Iron Age" exhibition. Especially the clay pot is awesome (apparently made by archaeologist Kristiina Korkeakoski -Väisänen). The spearhead (a 60 cm long "ango") is forged by a very talented blacksmith from Turku but I can´t remember his name. Both items are made in Kurala Turku Finland in 1990-1991. Early examples of experimental archaeology in Finland.
