Celtic Burials Discovered in France
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
BUCHERES, FRANCE—An Iron Age cemetery where five Celtic warriors had been buried has been discovered southeast of Paris. One of the men had been buried with an iron sword, scabbard, and shield. The graves of women contained torcs and bronze brooches decorated with coral. The high-status burials lack pottery and food, however, and no remains of children have been found. “I have never seen anything like it,” said archaeologist Emilie Millet.
