Caption: Cleaning Celtic necklace. Archaeologist cleaning a finely crafted Celtic necklace using a brush, a suction device and a microscope. The gold necklace was excavated from a grave at Glauberg near Frankfurt in Germany. The grave also held a statue of the druid nobleman who lay in it, along with gold and bronze offerings. These items have shown that the Celts were better goldsmiths than their Roman contemporaries. The buried man has been named the Glauberg Giant due to his great height. The Celts dominated western and central Europe during the first millennium B.C. Photographed in the Glauberg excavation laboratories at the State Department of Archaeology in Wiesbaden, Germany.
