Church of St. Ursula in Yutz
Yutz ( German Jeutz , Lorraine Jäitz ) is a French commune with 16,537 inhabitants (as of January 1, 2017) in the Moselle department in the Grand Est region (until 2015 Lorraine ).
The inhabitants call themselves Yussois and Yutzois . Nickname: "The Muertentrippler", those who trample on carrots.
The area was already inhabited by Celts in the La Tène period , as the discovery of the Basse-Yutz pots shows . The place was first mentioned in 830 as Judich . Today's municipality was created in 1970 by merging the two municipalities of Basse-Yutz (Niederjeutz) and Haute-Yutz (Oberjeutz).
The two Basse Yutz jugs are ceremonial vessels from the Iron Age (middle of the 5th century BC). They were discovered under poorly documented circumstances in the 1920s. When they were purchased by the British Museum, they were described as "great masterpieces combining most of the key features of early Celtic art". In many ways they are similar to the Kanne from Dürrnberg in Austria .
