|The Woman of Skrydstrup|
|Site||Skrydstrup, Southern Jetland|
The Woman from Skrydstrup was found in a grave burial in Skrydstrup, Southern Jetland (c. 1300 BC.). Her name was never known.
The was was laid in a coffin. She was wearing a short-sleeve blouse. Embroideries covered the sleeves and a belt covered her from the waist down along with a horn comb. The woman's hair was all combed forward over a hair pad. The hairdo was covered with a hairnet made out of horse hair. There were also large spiral gold rings by both ears.
She died at the age of 18-19 and was buried around the summertime.
A settlement was found near the site of the grave. It contained a prehistorical Danish house which was presumed to be the Skrydstrup woman's house. The house was 50m long and 10m wide. This finding presumed that the Skrydstrup woman came from a family of wealth.
