Nearly 2,600 years ago, the Celts buried a woman in a grave that was brimming with treasures.
It held jewelry made of gold, amber and bronze; bracelets carved from black stone; horse armor fashioned out of bronze and boar tusks; and furs and textiles piled high, indicating that the woman held an elite social status, archaeologists said.
In addition, the presence of a petrified sea urchin and an ammonite in the grave suggest that the woman may have worked as a priestess, the archaeologists said. The Iron Age burial dates to 583 B.C.
