The Egtved Girl
She was young, strong, and very courageous, but she met an untimely demise in the summer of 1370 BC. Many were saddened by her death and devastated by the loss of this Nordic Bronze-Age Girl. Age 16 to 18, she was buried with bracelets, an oxhide, and a small child at her feet. For the first time since her discovery in 1921, scientists are able to glimpse her life in the mountains of Scandinavia.
