comb fish

2,500 year old golden footwear

These shoes belonged to a Celtic chieftain about 2500 years ago. His people buried him under a huge mound in what is now Germany, along with all sorts of items: a gold-plated torc on his neck, a bracelet on his right arm, a hat made of birch bark, a gold-plated dagger made of bronze and iron, rich clothing, amber jewelry, a razor knife, a nail clipper, a comb, fishing hooks, and arrows. It was discovered by an amateur archaeologist in 1977.
