Replicas of the burial objects found in the princely tomb of Seddin. One of the most splendid Late Bronze Age graves in Germany was discovered not far from Berlin in 1899. 63 m across and 10 m high, the burial mound at Seddin is one of Europe’s outstanding Bronze Age archaeological monuments. The valuable and sumptuous grave goods indicate a kind of king or lord who was buried in about 800 B.C.E. with two probably young women.
