A fabulous hoard of jewelry and unprecedented objects recovered from the grave of a high-ranking Celtic lady who lived more than 2,500 years ago hint at far-flung trade across Europe.
Among the treasures in the grave were golden brooches, an elaborate gold-and-amber necklace and a long gold earring that looks like 21st-century club bling. The site, located in what is now southwestern Germany, is the earliest such “rich grave” of a Celtic woman and one of the few like it to have escaped looting, researchers said.
