Gaulish armies can use them as embalmed trophies.


Dr Rachel Pope, an expert in European prehistory at the University of Liverpool who was not involved in the study, said the research was exciting.

"We knew from statues that the display of human heads was popular in Mediterranean France akin to a broader tradition at this time involving the display of weapons. The evidence now, from this site, is that human heads were indeed embalmed," she said. "Now we have the science that supports earlier archaeology, as well as a greater understanding of where the classical texts and the archaeology meet."
