Museum In Aarhus, Denmark

I will continue my review about the attractions in 

Aarhus, Denmark.

This is the 

Moesgard museum

It can probably be called an archaeological and ethnographic museum.
I would recommend visiting here, only if you have a stop in the area, and especially if you decide to view the meeting of the Vikings.
But you shouldn’t go there only to visit this one museum.
The stone with the runic mask is a symbol of the museum.

However, the runes and Viking’s items are not the main attraction of the museum; it’s the Grauballe man, a well-preserved mummy, even the best preserved mummy, in Europe. In fact, it is not a mummy at all, but simply a corpse. In fact, it is so well preserved because it was in a peat bog, and dates back to the 3 BC.
2aarhus-moesgardmuseum.jpgMummies weren't the only things excavated in the vicinity of Jutland, there was also much more.
For example, no less than 15000 soldiers' weapons from different times were found.
