    Sun-Wheel from Bronze Age Found in Denmark



    Archeologists say it's extremely rare.


    A stone from the Bronze Age that shows the journey of the sun across the sky, declared treasure trove and must be returned to the National Museum.

    It is actually something of a sensation that, as a farmer on Mols recently came across one of his fields - called a wheel cross stone from the Bronze Age, there are so rare that the National Museum will have it for his treasure trove exhibition.

    - It is very rare, is extremely well preserved and therefore it has also aroused the museum's interest. Right now we keep it at the Museum Østjylland before having to leave for Copenhagen. We do hope to get the stone back to Ebeltoft once, says archaeologist at the Museum Østjylland, Esben Kannegaard to tv2oj.dk. He says that the stone in his time has been spent in a religious seance, where the sun and the sun god has been hailed.

    - Sun worship was the religion of the time, and it has been fiercely devoted to the sun. It was the basis of life, but you had so little knowledge of its movement, and people still believed the earth was flat. So it was a joy every time the sun again appeared in the sky after it had been in the underworld, which was the presumption that time, says Esben Kannegaard.

    The story can thus narrated from a stone that is found on a farm at Mols. It is interesting in itself, and that the stone is found precisely here is also unique.

    - Most often it is the rocky island of Bornholm, to subjects such petroglyphs found, but here it was among a lot of loose blocks, says the archaeologist. When an object is declared treasure trove, the finder does not keep it, but instead the person gets a reward.
