Boeslunde, Denmark has been an archaeological hotbed for sometime, particularly in regards to the excessive amount of golden artifacts that have been found there. Yet, this most recent find seems to be proving itself as the most fascinating and enigmatic discovery so-far from the region.
2,000 spirals made of pure gold and each done as a single filament just .1mm thick.
It’s an absolutely amazing find, and one that has left its discoverers and those who’ve researched it so far, utterly baffled. Still, that hasn’t stopped some from taking guesses at this incredibly curious find:
“The fact is we don’t know what they were for, although I’m inclined to think they were part of a priest-king’s robes, perhaps a fringe on a head-piece or parasol, or maybe woven into cloth,”
Flemming Kaul of the National Museum in Copenhagen.
More work will certainly be carried on in the region where these enigmatic spirals were found, and they themselves will undoubtedly be the subject of a great deal more research and speculation. Though, for the time being, they’ll remain a mystery.
