Vix

 

a village 5 km north of Ch¢tillon, department of Côte d’Or, France. Nearby, in 1953, the Celtic burial mound of a priestess was discovered, dating from the late sixth to early fifth century B.C. The corpse was placed on a chariot, and there were various ritualistic articles and items of everyday life. A bronze krater over 1.5 m high with decorations both sculpted and in relief, vessels made of precious metals and bronze (many of Etruscan origin), and an Attic black-figured vessel and other articles were found. The findings testify to intensive connections of the Celtic periphery with Italy and particularly with Etruria.
