Ancient gold figurine found in Danish field

A gold figurine of a bound, nude woman has been found in a farm field in Bornholm, Denmark. This is the fifth gold figurine found near each other in the same field. The woman dates to the 6th century CE.

The woman appears nude other than a decorated belt. Notches at the shoulders and ankles indicate the figure may portray someone bound with rope.

Researchers do not know why so many figures have been found in one field. They think that they may have been buried as a group and later separated by a plough.
