The Årslev grave

The Årslev grave from the end of the 300s was found in 1820 at Årslev Kirkebakke on Funen. In it two skeletons lay beside each other, but only one of the deceased had grave goods. Perhaps the person without the grave goods was a slave? The unique grave furnishings probably belonged to a woman. She was accompanied by other things: bronze dishes and buckets, a silver spoon, a crystal ball and an exclusive set of jewellery.
