Default Tomb of jewelry-clad Iron Age ‘PRINCESS’ unearthed in France

Tomb of jewelry-clad Iron Age ‘PRINCESS’ unearthed in France

May 20, 2020

An ancient tomb, dating back to the early Iron age, has been unearthed in France, revealing the resting place of an upper-class woman buried with a treasure trove of jewelry and other fancy trinkets.

Stumbled upon by accident during construction works at a burial site near Saint-Vulbas – some 32km (20 miles) from Lyon – one of the tombs contained remains of an evidently upper-crust woman who lived in the 8th century BC. She was found inside an oak coffin, carved from a log, along with other signs of her high status – perhaps royalty, even – according to researchers from the National Institute of Preventive Archaeology (INRAP).
