Hochdorf Chieftain’s Grave

Discovered in 1968 by an amateur archaeologist near Hochdorf an der Enz, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and excavated in 1978/79, the Hochdorf Chieftain’s Grave is a richly furnished Celtic burial chamber dating from 530 BC. These thin embossed gold plaques were on the deceased's now-disintegrated shoes. Among the many artefacts found in the grave was a nail clipper.
