Piece from late Hallstatt and early La Tène periods, The Glauberg

Written by

Celtic Bronze Belt Hook with figurative designed hook plate from Prince grave 2, Glauberg, ca 500 BCE.  Via Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt (not currently available).

The Glauberg is a Celtic oppidum in Hesse, Germany, consisting of a fortified settlement and several burial mounds, “a princely seat of the late Hallstatt and early La Tène periods.” Archaeological discoveries in the 1990s place the site among the most important early Celtic centres in Europe. It provides unprecedented evidence on Celtic burial, sculpture and monumental architecture.”
