Denmark and Egypt in the Bronze Age

Analysis of blue glass beads from Bronze Age burials in Denmark shows that they came from Egypt and Mesopotamia. Probably they came north in exchange for Danish amber, which has been found in Egypt. Above, sketch of a burial at Olby with the beads found in it; below, burial from Hesselagergard. These burials date to between 1400 and 1100 BCE. Much more at The History Blog.
