In 1966, Abbé Georges Kayser discovered four burial tombs of Trevirian cavalrymen at a place called Scheierheck near Goeblange-Nospelt. 30 years later, new archaeological excavations revealed more about them. The most impressive tomb in this vast complex is burial chamber B. Containing the charred bones of a cremated male individual, this tomb contained native furnishings, including two yew wood buckets - veritable masterpieces of late Celtic craftsmanship. The indigenous furniture was mixed with bronze tableware imported mainly from Italy, as well as ceramic tableware made in Gaul but imitating Italian shapes. This rich funerary material bears witness to the transition from Celtic to Gallo-Roman civilisation, in other words to advanced Romanisation.
