The Egtved girl

The images are scanned from Sussi Bech’s comic book about the Egtved girl, a Nordic Bronze Age girl whose remains were discovered outside Egtved, Denmark in 1921. According to Wikipedia, the Egtved girl was “Aged 16–18 at death, she was slim, 160 cm tall (about 5 ft 3 in)” and “had short, blond hair”. Her well-preserved remains can be seen at the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen.
