Grave goods in the La Gorge-Meillet chariot burial (Marne), 4th century BCE. Harnessing tools.

Dating from the 4th-century BCE, this tomb contains a man in his thirties, who lies beside a two-wheeled chariot. Horses fragments originating some one hundred years after the grave were found at the centre of a tomb. These fragments may reflect the existence of sacrificial rites subsequent to the burial.
