Statue of a Celtic warrior from Glauberg
The Glauberg is a hill some 40 km northeast of Frankfurt in Germany. It was occupied in the Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Early Mediaeval and Mediaeval periods, however it is mainly known for its Early Iron Age hillfort and the associated rich burials of three Celtic warriors on its slopes (http://www.keltenwelt-glauberg.de/en/). The life size sandstone statue of an Early Iron Age warrior (ca. 400 BC, one of the best preserved and most detailed examples from the whole of Europe) was found in a ditch around the main burial mound, leading to two parallel ditches which are oriented towards the Great Southern Moon Standstill. The original finds from the ‘princely’ graves as well as the sandstone statue and other finds from the Glauberg can be visited in the ‘Keltenwelt am Glauberg’ museum on the site.
