The enigmatic woman from Dannike

Borås Museum, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Who was the woman who was buried in a simple wooden coffin in a bog outside Dannike more than three hundred years ago? Why wasn't she buried in a cemetery?

In the 1940s, some men, who broke peat in Rydet's bog outside Dannike, found her remains. Today, the woman and her belongings; eg clothes, shoes and pipe at Borås Museum. Archaeologists, osteologists and conservators can answer many, but not all, of our questions about the Dannika woman. The mystery surrounding her is still unsolved. In the exhibition you will find part of a captivating fate of women from the 17th century.
