Germany.. Thieves steal a valuable treasure worth millions of euros from a museum

Thieves broke into a museum in the town of Manching in Upper Bavaria, Germany, and stole a gold treasure from the Celtic period worth several million euros.

Thieves broke into the Museum of the Celts and Romans at dawn and stole the gold, according to German news agency Bavarian police.


A cache of 450 gold coins was discovered in Manching, a town near Ingolstadt in 1999, and this discovery was the largest discovery of Celtic gold in the last century. It has been on public display since 2006.

The area is actively explored by archaeologists and is considered by the Bavarian Office for Historical Preservation to be among the most important archaeological sites north of the Alps.


It is noteworthy that the Celtic period is the period extending from the late Bronze Age through the Iron Age, i.e. the period extending from about 700 BC to about 400 AD.
