Congratulations[edit]

In the spirit of the Wikipedia community, I'd like to congratulate Wiglaf's start on this article! I know if I lived in the time of that woman in the link picture, I'd have to take her for a wife...This is after assertive discussion with Wiglaf.  :) TheUnforgiven 21:43, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

Lejre[edit]

I don't understand this sentence:

"It [the outfit] was reconstructed for the National Museum of Denmark in Lejre."

The National Museum is in Copenhagen, but it might point to the Lejre Experimental Centre? I have deleted it from the article but hope it is cleared up. Poulsen 12:30, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

The sentence makes perfect sense. It states that the outfit was reconstructed at Lejre, for the National Museum of Denmark. TharkunColl 12:42, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
Oh, okay, shouldn't it be *by* Lejre then? - with a link to Lejre Experimental Centre instead, so it doesn't ssem like a work of the town itself. Poulsen 12:56, 24 November 2006 (UTC)


A man[edit]

New research has shown that in fact the "Egtved Girl" was a man. DNA tests show that he has a Y chromosome. This has set of new speculations about gender issues in bronzeage scandinavia, and it has been suggested that in bronzeage sicieties the role of priest and preistess could be carried out by people of either sex with equal possibility. The research is summarised here at the homepage of the danish national museum: http://www.natmus.dk/sw56988.asp ·Maunus·ƛ· 11:33, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Haha very funny. I can't read a word of Danish, but I did notice the date at the head of the article - 1. april 2008. ðarkuncoll 12:20, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Goddammit Im an idiot.·Maunus·ƛ· 12:33, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
And having done a little research since posting the above, it turns out that the Danish term for April Fools' Day is aprilsnar - e.g. [1], [2], and [3] - which is displayed quite prominently right at the top of the article in question. ðarkuncoll 12:44, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Please continue to rub it in it is so delightful. :)·Maunus·ƛ· 13:03, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Sorry - just needed to make sure - hehe! ðarkuncoll 13:04, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
