The discovery at Hordain (Nord) of a grave with a set of chariot and harness parts (in particular a decorated yoke) enables us to give an account of a type of burial rite frequently attested in northern Gaul, i.e. the offering of chariot parts. Even if this custom is not necessarily indicative of a warrior status, it is nevertheless a criterion by which the various tribes of Gallia Belgica may be distinguished.
