Iron age building
photo by Marj Kibby


The Grauballe Man is one of the most spectacular Danish finds from prehistory. The Grauballe Man is the best preserved bog body from Iron Age Europe.

The permanent exhibition shows a range of exceptional archaeological finds from Denmark’s prehistory.

Furthermore you can see the impressive sacrifices of weapons from the nearby Illerup river valley, which gives a detailed insight into the warfare and sacrificial traditions of the Iron Age.
