3000-Year-Old Ancient Conical Hats Or Just Some Advanced Ancient Devices?

Their original purpose, dubbed “the headgear of ancient wizards,” may have been so complicated that even modern-day scientists have yet to figure it out.

Many gods, including Quetzalcoatl, the serpent god, the god of wind, and even most Sumerian gods, wore conical caps, according to official interpretations.

The first artifact was discovered by a worker’s wife in a nearby river and later purchased by Georg Raschke, the head of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum’s prehistoric and early history collection. In the last 170 years, four other comparable cones have been discovered in Switzerland, Germany, and France.

The first was discovered in 1835 and is known as The Golden Hat of Schifferstadt. It was discovered in 1835 at Schifferstadt, near Speyer, and dates from 1,400 to 900 BC.

The Avanton Gold Cone is the second, and it is the only one that is still unfinished today. It was discovered in 1844 at Avanton, near Poitiers, and dates from 1000 to 900 BC.

The Golden Cone of Ezelsdorf-Buch is the third, and it, too, dates from 1000-900 BC. It was discovered near Nuremberg in 1953 for the first time.

The Berlin Gold Hat is the last of the bunch, and it comes from Swabia or Switzerland. It’s also thought to date from 1000 to 800 BC.

All four are descended from a single gold nugget. The 1,739 sun and half-moon markings on the caps’ surface are still unreadable to this day. Some have compared it to the 18.67-year “Metonic Cycle,” however this occurred some 500 years after the invention of the hats.
