Artwork of celts

Unearthing Le Câtillon II

This is the story of the world’s largest Celtic coin hoard, as part of the research into the search for more information on Jersey’s Celts. When Roman armies marched through Europe 2000 years ago, they left behind a trail of death and destruction which almost wiped out the culture and civilization of the Celtic people who lived there.
