A model of the waggon from the Celtic Vix burial, Châtillon-sur-Seine, in northeast France close to a fortified Celtic site or oppidum and in the vicinity of at least four more burials. Discovered undisturbed, the princely burial dates to the late 6th- or early 5th century BCE. The deceased was placed on the wagon which had had its wheels removed and placed against the wall of the tomb.
