Context: Anklets; Hallstatt D1; Tubular bronze anklets
Anklets were worn in Champagne in two periods, Hallstatt Dl (Fig. 1, type A) and La Tène II (Fig. 2, type h), and the types are quite different.
A pair of quite similar anklets was found in grave 9 at Charvais (grave 9 according to the table, but grave 39 according to the text, Lepage, L., 1966, Le cimetière hallstattien de Charvais à Heiltz-l’Evêque (Marne), ‘Revue archéologique de l’est et du centre-est’ (17), 70-87, 82, fig. 5, no. 9). Lepage (ibid.) suggests that the two large tubular 'bracelets' from Les Jogasses grave 141 were in fact anklets - otherwise there were no anklets from Les Jogasses. Slightly smaller tubular rings, ribbed as ML.1907, were worn as bracelets, e.g. Les Jogasses grave 139.
