This chapter was summarised and supplemented by A. Kapuran on the basis of abundant published and unpublished material left by the late B. Jovanović The general picture of the material culture of the eastern group of Celts in the Danube Basin was acquired, as we have seen, primarily on the basis of material from systematically investigated necropoleis. The most distinctive mark on that culture was made by the pottery, whose mass production was possible in that period thanks to the use of the potter’s wheel.80 Metal objects are known, primarily from bronze and iron jewellery and weapons, as a characteristic of the La Tène civilisation.81 Generally speaking, products of bronze and iron metalwork from the La Tène period in the Danube Basin are typologically identified and dated on the basis of grave associations. Finds from settlements are sparse and incomparably more poorly preserved.
