In a Danish laboratory, a team of archaeologists are studying a set of ancient remains. They’re all that’s left of the Egtved Girl, a teenager who died 3,500 years ago. Using the latest technology, the researchers are finally able to paint a picture of the young woman’s extraordinary life – and the results are fascinating.
Although much about the lives of ancient humans remains a mystery to us, archaeologists are forever finding ways to shine a light on the past. Whether they are excavating ancient settlements or putting forward new theories about forgotten civilizations, they are constantly looking to better understand where we came from.
