Presentation

The CELTIC GOLD project aims to renew the perception of the Western La Tène culture (mid 5th to 1st century BC) through the study of production and consumption of golden objects. This concerns a wide geographic area, namely Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, and Switzerland, and involves a large variety of economic, social, technological, and artistic aspects.

By this blog, we want to highlight our researches, both methodological approaches (conduct of fine metal work objects, experimentations) and main results of this Franco-German program in Social and Human Sciences (FRAL), supported by both ANR (Agence nationale de la recherche) and DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft).

We hope that you will find every information that you are looking for about these topics.
