Remnants of Celtic settlement found near Jičín


Czech archaeologists say they were surprised to discover the remnants of a Celtic settlement near Jičín, Eastern Bohemia. Dating from the third century BCE, it is the most northerly Celtic site found in that region of the country and came to light during work on a bypass around the town.

An archaeologist from the Jičín Museum said items from the late Stone Age had also been found on the dig.
