Art of the Celts, Historic Museum of Bern

Gilded in preparation for the afterlife, this 42cm long, bronze and iron dagger was carried by the prince in life. The blade was protected by a richly decorated sheath. The gold coating made for the burial consisted of 16 parts, all precisely fitted onto the dagger without any fold.

The Hochdorf Chieftain’s Grave is a richly-furnished burial chamber. Regarded as the “Tutankamon of the Celts”, it was discovered in 1977 near Hochdorf an der Enz in Baden-Württemberg, Germany). A man of 40 years old, 6 ft 2 in (187 cm) tall was laid out on a bronze couch. He had been buried with a gold-plated torc on his neck, a bracelet on his right arm, and most notably, thin embossed gold plaques were on his now-disintigrated shoes. At the foot of the couch was a large cauldron decorated with three lions around the brim. The east side of the tomb contained a four-wheeled wagon holding a set of bronze dishes - enough to serve nine people.

This horn has a capacity of 5.5 litres, which was enough to get suitably inebriated. It’s the largest and most precious drinking horn, specially reserved for the host. The iron was forged into the shape of a horn and decorated with shear gold. The tip was adorned with beads made of bones.
