An archaeological survey at the site of a planned gravel pit expansion in Kallerup, Denmark, this February unearthed an exceedingly rare grouping of Bronze Age artifacts: a man wearing a horned helmet, a large ceremonial axe and two horse-headed snake figures. They were made of bronze about 3,000 years ago.The figure has two faces, Janus-like, and is unique in Danish archaeology. It is fitted with a slot for a pole in the bottom, perhaps for carrying it in processions.
