The Barrow of the Egtved Girl
The Egtved Girl is one of Denmark’s best preserved bronze-age findings - unique historic monument of world renown. The young woman was buried in an oak coffin in the year 1370 B.C. The finding of the Egtved Girl in 1921 revealed one of the world’s best preserved female dresses. Today, the reconstructed grave mound – 22 ms in diameter and four ms high – can be seen along with a small museum that describes the finding.
The museum also features a copy of the Egtved Girl’s coffin, although due to the theft of the copies of her clothing and belt buckle in the autumn of 2012, new reconstructions are currently being created. The original grave finds are exhibited at the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen.
The surrounding landscape has been planted to look like it did in the bronze-age.
