More information

Discovered in 1966, burial chamber B of Goeblange-Nospelt was part of a broader ensemble of cremation graves. Built of oak wood and covered by a  tumulus, it contained the charred bones of a cremated male individual. The grave goods included locally made items such as two beautiful yew wood buckets - true masterpieces of late Celtic art -, bronze vessels imported mostly from Italy and used for serving wine, and ceramic tableware, locally produced but imitating Italian forms. These rich grave goods reflect the transition from Celtic to Gallo-Roman civilization; they bear witness to an advanced degree of Romanization, and probably show that the deceased served as a horseman in the auxiliary troops of the Roman army.
