An elegant seat of otter skin
Shortly after 1400 BC, a chieftain was buried in an oak coffin within a great burial mound, now called Guldhøj. The dead man was laid out in his outfit and was wrapped in a cowhide. An axe and a dagger of bronze, two wooden bowls, a wooden box, and a spoon of horn were also placed in the coffin.
In addition, a folding stool of ash wood, with a seat made of otter skin, was placed in the coffin.
