Hollow rattles create sounds when the shaking movement causes the loose parts to hit each other or the body of the rattle. The rattle shown here in a picture is part of the contents of a grave from the Hallstatt Period (about 600-500 B.C.) and is preserved in the Natural History Museum in Vienna.

The second picture shows the town of Hallstatt where the clay rattle was discovered. There are many other items which have been discovered in this graveyard, giving the name to a whole period (Hallstatt Culture) (E. Stadler)
