The "Schnippenburg" is an acient fortification near of Ostercappeln in Germany. Since 2001 archeological excavations revealed a kind of ancient trading place, connecting the celtic south and the germanic north. Not only imported celtic goods were discovered, but also lokal copies in slightly different style. A certain number of sacrificial pits maybe belonged to a larger sanctuary. Scientific examinations of coal out of the fortification dated the wall between 278 and 258 v. Chr. The number and quality of archeological finds is unique in that region. An exhibition of the Schnippenburg took place in 2007 in Osnabrueck.

Some of the finds were reconstructed with permission of the Stadt- and Kreisarchäologie Osnabrück in a limited number.

The large brooch of celtic style is one of the most impressive finds of the Schnippenburg excavations and belonged to one of the sacrifices (Foto). With a length of about 7 cm it is realy large, but also light, sturdy and usable as the original was.
