The longest of the many spirals are around 3 cm in length and are all produced from thin and flat golden thread dating from 700-900 BC.
The find, in an area of Zealand considered one of northern Europe’s best places to find gold artefacts from the Bronze Age, remains as mysterious as it is sensational.
