It was discovered in 1921 and is one of the best preserved Bronze Age findings in Denmark. It contained the well preserved body of a girl known as the Egtved Girl. On the site where she was found a barrow with a diameter of 22 metres and a height of 4 metres has been built. A 16 to 18-year-old girl was dressed in a string skirt, a short sleeved shirt with a woven belt and a bronze spiked belt disc. She was laid on a cow-hide and covered by a coarse woollen blanket. Lying next to her was a birch-bark drink container with remnants of a drink made of bog myrtle, cranberries and honey.There is also a small museum describing the discovery of the rare find in detail and displaying copies of the Egtved Girl’s clothing, jewellery and buckle.This has allowed a very close look at Nordic Bronze Age clothing and hairstyles.
