The Battersea Shield was found in the area around Chelsea Bridge, London. Dated to 350 BC, it seems that an object this elaborate would belong to a member of the warrior elite or even a Celtic chief.

In Gaulish religion, Nantosuelta was a goddess of nature, the earth, fire, and fertility. The Mediomatrici (Alsace, Lorraine) depicted her in art as holding a model house or dovecote on a pole. Other likely depictions show her with a pot or bee hive. Nantosuelta is attested by statues, and by inscriptions.
