From Dutch NOS TV:

Again, archaeologists in Oss have made a big Early Iron Age discovery. Near the biggest mound of the Netherlands, they have discovered a second prince’s grave.

It is but a little smaller than the grave which was excavated in 1933. It is a few hundred meters away from it. …

X-ray research has revealed 525 small bronze objects. Tomorrow, the discoveries will be exhibited in Museum Jan Cunen in Oss.
