Bronze Age hoard found in Denmark

A hoard of four Bronze Age gold arm rings has been found by a couple of Danish metal detectorists.

The four gold rings are all different and have distinct wear marks. Which shows that they once sat on the arm of a Bronze Age man whose clothing has rubbed against the soft gold. This is the first time ever, to be found four of the so-called oath rings at once.

These are so-called eds-rings, dating from the Late Bronze Age around 800 BC.

The (slightly wonky) Google translation from the Danish:
