Huge tomb of Celtic prince unearthed in France March 2015

I missed this earlier this year. Fantastic discovery with a lot of good photos.

Huge tomb of Celtic prince unearthed in France: 'Exceptional' 2,500-year-old burial chamber reveals stunning treasures
The grave was crammed with Greek and possibly Etruscan artefacts
The prince is buried with his chariot at the centre of a huge mound,
130ft (40 metres) burial mound from 5th Century remains unopened
Biggest find was a bronze-decorated cauldron used to store wine
Mausoleum contained a ceramic wine pitcher made by the Greeks
The burial chamber is one of the largest recorded for this period
