Early neolithic skeletons from Bolkilde bog, Denmark

  • Pia Bennike, Klaus Ebbesen and Lise Bender Jørgensen
Extract

In 1946 two skeletons were found during peat-digging in Bolkilde bog in the north of the Danish island of Als. They have now been dated to the middle of the fourth millennium BC and are interpreted as ritual offerings of a fertility cult which went through from the early Neolithic to the time of Frej and Freja. All three authors are in the University of Copenhagen: Pia Bennike is a research fellow in the Anthropological Laboratory, Klaus Ebbesen a senior lecturer, and Lise Bender Jørgensen Carlsberg research fellow, in the Institute of Prehistoric Archaeology.
