Warcq, France: the Archaeology I Wish I Were Doing this Week

Archaeologists in Ardennes, France, working in advance of highway construction, have just begun the excavation of a Gallic chariot tomb that seems remarkably intact. It is a chamber burial, the top and walls of the tomb lined with wooden boards. This could date to any time between the 7th century BCE and the Roman conquest.

 A rim, I would guess.

 Gold foil; a chariot ornament or something else?

Horse skeleton. Oh, I wish I were there.
