Scandinavian Bronze Age
The release of the Perry figures coincided with a holiday to Denmark some years ago as well as seeing the Lur horns for the first time in the bronze, so to speak. I hadn’t visited the National Museum of Denmark’s collection from that period for many years until the weekend . I was delighted with what l saw, good interpretive panels and a animation of the Sun chariot which begins by plunging the room into darkness then lights it up with moving figures from rock carvings . Words don’t do it justice, go there and press the button, or better still let a child do it and see their wonderment.P.s outdoor dining photo slipped in by mistake, just ignore it, thanks.
