The picture shows a Central European Germanic farmstead of the Iron Age (1st century AD). You can see three oblong, single-bay houses and gables with clay walls, thatched roofs and timber framework, two main-buildings and an annex. The family is standing in front of the shed and the dwelling house. There are the man of the house with a companion, riding horses, two women, three children and a grandmother. The depicted tools like the wooden plough, cattle livestock farming, the pheasant hunt and spinning shall tell us about the daily life of the people.
