Idol Slipshavn skog

In Slipshavn skog at Nyborg in Denmark was found in 1981 a golden figure with double golden necklace-rings. It is supposed to represent a chieftain It is dated to the 6th c.AD.
In later times also some interesting idol- and figure-finds have been made, who still more clearly connect the ring-habit to the North. A suspected wooden idol from the 5th c.Ad, found at Rude Eskilstrup on Zealand also might show a continuity to the goddesses with necklace-rings from the Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age as a sacral symbol.

The figure is from the 6th c.AD. and demonstrates that gold-rings indeed were worn in the North at this time.
