The Egtved Girl

52' (ENG, GER, FRE)

She was young, strong and very courageous. Her death was a heartbreaking tragedy. This happened in the summer of 1370 BC.

Now, The Egtved Girl, a 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 by recreating her path throughout Europe. 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? Watch and find out!

The focus is on her: 16 to 18 years old, adored by her fellow countrymen, buried in Denmark - far away from her home. The movie The Egtved Girl shows in details the girl's trail through extensive re-enactments and we get to experience the lifestyle of those from the Bronze Age. We see how they nourished themselves, how they traded, how they made bronze and how they loved. Through her, we will solve a great mystery of archaeology about a more or less unknown epoch of humanity.
