Languages of publication
The article deals with two inhumation graves of warriors from LaTène period discovered in 2008 and 2011 in Prague-Jiviny (cadaster Ruzyně) and Prague-Bubeneč – „Podbaba“ (cadaster Bubeneč). The grave from Bubeneč contained complete weaponry of warrior (sword, spear and a shield), including two brooches. Interesting find is a belt chain used for attaching sword around the waist. It was made using a specific method which has its origin in the Mediterranean world. Chains of this type appear mainly in Celtic graves of north-eastern France. In Bohemia it is probably a unique exemplar which has been published. The Jiviny-grave was equipped only with a sword, poorly preserved belt chain and fragment of spear. Both graves can be dated to the 3rd century BC, to LaTène period stage LTB2 – C1.
