The Egtved Girl
The Egtved Girl is one of the best-known figures from prehistory. One summer’s day in 1370 BC she was buried in an oak coffin that was covered by the barrow Storehøj near Egtved, west of Vejle. Although not much is left of the Egtved Girl, her tale is a captivating story of the Bronze Age people.
Of the girl herself only hair, brain, teeth, nails and a little skin remain. Her teeth reveal that she was 16-18 years old when she died. On her body she wore a short tunic and a knee-length skirt made of cords. A belt plate of bronze decorated with spirals lay on her stomach. She also had a comb made of horn with her in the grave, attached to her belt. Around each arm was a ring of bronze and she had a slender ring in her ear. By her face lay a small box of bark with a bronze awl and the remains of a hair net. At the feet of the Egtved Girl a small bucket of bark had been placed, which once contained a type of beer. There was also a small bundle of clothing with the cremated bones of a 5-6-year-old child. A few bones from the same child were found in the bark box. The Egtved Girl saw the light of day again when her grave was excavated in 1921 – almost 3500 years later. The Egtved Girl had a belt plate on her stomach. It may have been a symbol of the sun, which was the most important element in Bronze Age religion.

Anyway here's Lady Haleth. Her outfit is inspired by Egtved Girl, whose clothes were just sick.

I find myself endlessly fascinated with jewelry and metalworking. I took a class with a local jeweler in the middle of the pandemic and bought a bunch of supplies. And it’s so much work but so lovely when you end up with an object that’s more than just a sheet of metal. And to think that we’ve been doing this for thousands of year, carefully crafting and honing and adorning ourselves. Truly alchemical. For whatever reason I keep getting Facebook posts about ancient bodies being unearthed and I don’t find them disturbing (for the most part), especially when they’ve been discovered as having been buried in an elaborate ritual or covered with precious metals, fabrics, writings. The Egtved girl made me particularly emotional.

egtved girl’s entire body decomposing leaving only her hair and her clothes behind vs. the bocksten man’s body and outer clothes being preserved but his underwear disintegrating so completely that they started wondering if he’d had any on to begin with

Tree Graves
While it was common for the Germanic people to cremate their dead and bury them in either burial mounds or halls, some other traditions were used as well to take care of the dead. One of these methods was the burial of people in hollowed out trees.
This method of burial has been used since the bronze age. A few examples are, the Egtved bronze age girl from modern day Denmark, the Borum Eshøj graves in modern day Denmark (about which I have written a post before), Tree coffin from Oberflacht, Germany, tree coffin found in Hegebeintum, the Netherlands. There is a legend, described by Giraldus Cambrensis in the 12th century, that the body of king Arthur himself was buried in an oak tree trunk said to be discovered in 1191.
Curiously enough, almost all of these tree coffins were made out of oak. From England to Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark these oak coffins have been found. Now why they were all made from oak is unknown but we do know that the oak tree plays a very important role in the Germanic spirituality. The sacred trees in honour of Donar were also all oak trees. Perhaps the Ygdrassil is an oak tree.
The practice of oak coffin burials continued until the medieval ages. The Frisians were one of the last people who still buried their people in oak coffins which is curious since there are hardly any trees in Frisia. Oak does not grow well in these wet lands often claimed by the sea so these trees must have been imported.
The Frisian tree graves date back to the 7th and 8th century, a time during which Christianity spread like wildfire. Christian graves from this time were buried in a certain direction (East-West), these tree graves weren't buried in a Christian fashion so we can assume that these people were still pagans.
A reconstruction has been made of the remains found in Hegebeintum, Frisia, the Netherlands. Her grave was found in 1905 in a terp, she still lies inside her hollowed out oak tree. Inside the tree, beads of amber, glass and shells were found as well. Looking at her face gives us an unique insight into the very last pagan Frisians from the 7th and 8th century, She has been named Beitske. Beitske was about 1,60 meters tall and died at the age of 45. The beads found in her grave indicate that she was a fairly rich lady.
Here are photos of: Egtved Girl Grave, Borum graves, German tree coffin, Remains of Beitske, Reconstruction of Beitske,

I am such an absolute sapio nerd.. I have barely watched anything lately (been too busy playing video games) but have caught a few great historical documentaries lately. I am a total whore for history, especially ancient and medieval history. I am so happy that Amazon Prime tv offers quite a few documentaries on these topics that I have not already seen. The few I have watched so far are King Arthur’s Lost Kingdom, the Voynich Code and The Egtved Girl. My brain is so excited. Especially since there are quite a few other docs to watch and nerd out to.

Hey, just wanted to inform you about an unfortunate misspelling in your post about Egtvedpigens' outfit. You spelled her name "Egtvedpiken", which in Danish actually means something more along the lines of "The Egtved Dick". Egtvedpigen with a G means The Egtved Girl
Apperntly that spelling was norwegian
Tumblr media
So, its not misspellt, its just norwegian. Oh, scandinavian languages sheningans 😉
