The Gallic Town of Entremont

Nice website for the archaeological site of Entremont, a Gallic town in Provence dating to the second century BC. It was quite urban and Mediterranean, with many small houses packed tightly together. Among the finds was a 5x20-meter hall apparently used as a temple or shrine, several fragmentary statues that show Greek influence, and olive oil presses. There were a few cool Celtic details, though, like this fragment of a hero's hand clutching a severed head.
