Roissy chariot burial (Val d'Oise), 3rd century BCE

The Roissy tombs demonstrate the importance of the horse-riding aristocracy in the Parisii people (a Gallic people living in what is today Paris). In one of them, a deceased, probably male person lay on a two-wheeled chariot with rich grave goods. The goods – following the “plastic” style – are representative of the mastery of the art of bronze achieved by the artisans of the time. At either side are many food offerings of pieces of meat and ceramic vessels.
