Borremose Woman
Copenhagen, Denmark

 

 

     Background information about the mummy

Borremose Woman, discovered in Denmark in 1948, was the third bog body found in three years in Borre Fen.

P. V. Glob wrote, "The dead woman lay face downwards covered by a large woolen blanket, which was adapted with a leather strap for use as a skirt. The lead lay to the east, with the right arm bent up against the face, the left arm was under the left leg which was bent right up underneath her. Like [Borremose Man] the woman had been roughly handled before she ended up in the bog. The back of the head was scalped and her face was crushed."

A later scientific study revealed that her skull was damaged after death. A pollen analysis suggested that she died in autumn.

 

     Where to see her

Borremose Woman is currently not displayed, but is stored in The Nationalmuseet in Copenhagen, Denmark.
