A highly-elaborate grave of what could have been a real-life Asterix fighter has been discovered on a West Sussex building site.

A highly-elaborate grave of what could have been a real-life Asterix fighter has been discovered on a West Sussex building site.

The grave was found during excavations ahead of a Berkeley Homes housing development in North Bersted in 2008.

But it has taken years of conservation and scientific analysis to prepare the artefacts for display.


Part of the headdress from the helmet belonging to a real-life Asterix resistance fighter against the Romans that has been discovered on a West Sussex building site. The discovery will go on display at Chichester's Novium Museum in January 2020

'It really is absolutely a unique find in the British Isles and in the wider continent,' said Dr Melanie Giles, senior lecturer in archaeology at the University of Manchester.

'We don't have another burial that combines this quality of weaponry and Celtic art with a date that puts it around the time of Caesar's attempted conquest of Britain.

We will probably never know his name, what we know from the archaeology is that he is either someone from eastern England who may have gone and fought with the Gauls, which we know were a problem for Caesar, as they were allies with the French, helping them with their struggle against him.

Sure I am, how do you think I survived here as long as I have and being the ones that chuckles more than the whole loco collective. My team uses honesty and good morals to wade through all this shit.
I don't rally give a fuk how any of you ended up being bat-shit crazy. All I need to know is there is no cure but a long period of time after your influence has peaked and the big downhill slide begins.
