The Celts found a unique element of clothing for antiquity, not typical for other nationalities (for example, Rome and Greece) - a skirt. The skirt was probably a feminine type of clothing, cinched at the waist with a belt, and worn with a shirt instead of the classic peplos.

The discovery of the famous skirt has dimensions of 87 by 131 cm. Unlike peplos, it was completely sewn together. The upper part of the skirt has ropes for wearing with a belt. The find is made of woolen fabric.
