The discovery of the women from Juellinge

The woman from Juellinge was found in 1908 during the construction of a railway, the so-called sugar beet track at Vesterborg. However, it was not the only woman’s grave, which was uncovered in Juellinge. A total of four graves from the Early Roman Iron Age were found, containing the bodies of three women and a girl. After the railway workers’ discovery was reported to the National Museum, an archaeological excavation was started in which the finds were documented. In the past, as well as today, many prehistoric discoveries have been made in connection with various building projects.
