Coligny Calendar: The 1,800-Year-Old Lunisolar calendar banned by the Romans

In 1897, the Gaulish Coligny Calendar was discovered in Coligny, Ain,
France.  The bronze calendar was found broken into 73 pieces, which
together form a 5 foot wide, 3.5 foot high bronze tablet. When
assembled, it displays a lunisolar calendar, which follows both moon
phases and the time of solar year. It is believed that the calendar,
dating back to the 2nd century AD, had been banned by the Romans as it
indicated druidic practices. The calendar can now be found at the
Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon.
