Celtic burial tombs from antiquites have been found in the hundreds across central europe especially France and Germany.  This tomb is special in that is was not raided and the artifacts have not been disturbed since antiquity. A six foot two prince, cheif, or king was buried here, lying on a six foot long bronze couch. A cauldron hodling one hundred gallons of mead, gold shoes, gold sword and a bronze couch show how sophistaced, wealthy and technilogically advaced the celts were.
