Palma - Fragmenting the Chieftain – Catalogue deel 15

Bekijk alles van


There is a cluster of Early Iron Age (800-500 BC) elite burials in the Low Countries in which bronze vessels, weaponry, horse-gear and wagons were interred as grave goods. Mostly imports from Central Europe, these objects are found brought together in varying configurations in cremation burials generally known as chieftains' graves or princely burials. In terms of grave goods they resemble the Fürstengräber of the Hallstatt Culture of Central Europe, with famous Dutch and Belgian examples being the Chieftain's grave of Oss, the wagon-grave of Wijchen and the elite cemetery of Court-St-Etienne.The majority of the Dutch and Belgian burials were found several decades to several centuries ago and context information tends to be limited. They also tend to be published in Dutch or French or otherwise difficult to access publications. This research went back to the original reports and studied the objects found in these graves in detail. This generated new and evidence-based insights and interpretations into these exceptional burials and allowed for the reconstruction of the individual burial rituals. Fragmenting the Chieftain - Catalogue presents the first comprehensive overview of the Dutch and Belgian elite graves (in English) and the objects they contain.The results of an in-depth and practice-based archaeological analysis of the Dutch and Belgian elite graves and the burial practice through which they were created can be found in Fragmenting the Chieftain. A practice-based study of Early Iron Age Hallstatt C elite burials in the Low Countries.Contents:C1 IntroductionC2 Terminology and typologyC3 Revealing restorationsC4 BaarloC5 Basse-WavreC6 Court-St-EtienneC7 Darp-BisschopsbergC8 Ede-BennekomC9 Flobecq-Pottelberg Tombelle 78C10 Gedinne-ChevaudosC11 Haps grave 190C12 Harchies-Maison CauchiesC13 HavréC14 Heythuizen-BisschopC15 Hofstade-Kasteelstraat Sp. 16C16 Horst-HegelsomC17 La Plantée des DamesC18 Leesten-Meijerink grave 1C19 Limal-MorimoineC20 Lommel-Kattenbos Tombelle 20C21 Louette-St-Pierre Fosse-Aux-MortsC22 Maastricht-HeerC23 MeerloC24 MeppenC25 Neerharen-Rekem tombe 72C26 Oss-VorstengrafC27 Oss-ZevenbergenC28 Rhenen-KoerheuvelC29 Someren-KraayenstarkC30 Someren-PhilipscampingC31 Stoquoy Tombelle 5C32 Uden-SlabroekC33 VenloC34 Weert-BoshoverheideC35 WijchenBibliographyCA1 Hallstatt period textile finds from the NetherlandsCA2 Inventory Chieftain's grave of Oss through three restorations
