Magdalenenberg Hill: Mysterious Mounds of the Celts

Magdalenenberg Hill inVillingen-Schwenningen is a real "place of power". It is here thatthe Celts made their mounds (or burial). They are the largest extant mounds inCentral Europe. The most impressive is the tomb of the Celtic prince- thelargest and most solemn. Knives and utensils, as well as amber jewelry werefound in the other tombs- more than a hundred.

The tombsfound on the Magdalenenberg hill were perfectly preserved, though made of wood.Today they are exhibited in the Franciscan Museum, from which a Celtic trail hasrecently been laid to Magdalenenberg. A new interesting hypothesis suggests nowthat tombs of the Celts were arranged in a specific order according to thelunar calendar and noted the activity of a particular constellation. The sametheory holds that the mysterious wooden stakes, found at the bottom and at thetop of the hill, helped the Celts to predict lunar eclipses.
