Three groups of burial mounds are situated along an old route. The smallest group, which includes one particularly prominent mound, is situated 200 m from the ruins of a Roman villa.

Just like the neighbouring mound, Mound 1 was originally erected for the burial of a Celtic woman. The reconstructed stone setting was erected about 250 BC as a prominent marker for the tomb: it consisted of a circular wall with an external diameter of 3.30 m surrounding a stone setting made of nine massive quartz blocks, each of which weighed up to 200 kg and two thirds of which protruded from the mound.
Within the mound, burned bones, two clothing fasteners (fibulae), an ornate belt chain and pottery, as well as bronze and iron elements from a chariot with no wheels were found. The archaeological remains confirm that a prominent Celtic woman in fine clothing was cremated on a pyre together with the body of a chariot and food offerings, and that the mound was then raised over her remains.
