The discovery of the tomb of Vix in 1953 was described as being the “Most important archaeological discovery in France”, and played an important role in reviving scientific research on the Iron Age in our country. In fact, this prince grave contained objects of gold and bronze — among which the famous "Vix crater" (6th century B.C.) — that compelled the general public to modify profoundly its traditional view of the Gauls as a barbaric, cantankerous and undisciplined people. Therefore, it was only fitting to assemble, under the title “Archaeology of the Celts”, the collection of works that the friends, pupils and colleagues of René Joffroy wanted to publish in his memory.
As it is to be expected, this collection reflects the wealth and variety of the different approaches to Celtic archaeology in France and other European neighbour countries. Taking into account the excavations of habitats and burial places of the Ist and 2nd Iron Age, and the thematic studies on different categories of protohistoric objects (arms, jewels, ceramics), this work presents, at one and the same time, the relationship that exists between research and the problems of the different regions in Europe, and the underlying reality of what the Celtic settlements have in common, from Spain to the Carpathians and from Ireland to Italy.The discovery of the tomb of Vix in 1953 was described as being the “Most important archaeological discovery in France”, and played an important role in reviving scientific research on the Iron Age in our country.
