The Egtved Girl
52' (ENG, GER, FRE)
She was young, strong and very courageous, but she met an untimely demise in the summer of 1370 BC.
This spectacular time travel to the Bronze Age lifts the veil of mystery surrounding the girl discovered on a farm field in Denmark in 1921. For the first time in the history of archaeology, scientists have successfully tracked the ways of a pre-historic being and we can accompany her during the last 15 months of life, recreate her path throughout Europe and solve a great mystery of archaeology about a more or less unknown epoch of humanity. But who was the girl? Why did she risk the dangerous path three times in the space of 15 months and why was she buried with gifts?
With extensive re-enactments this film makes you feel like being part of a crime investigation while the scientists gather new information and evidence. The liquid stored in a cup was beer and astonishingly the clothing was made of wool that was not from Denmark. A hint that the people in the bronze age were trading. These new insights arouse the scientist’s curiosity.
