Dark Ages lady’s face reconstructed in Friesland


This 4 June 2015 Dutch video is about reconstruction of the face of a seventh century lady. She had been buried in the highest artificial dwelling hill, or terp, in the Netherlands; in Hegebeintum village in Friesland province.

Archaeologist Maja D’Hollosy has now reconstructed the ‘terp lady”s face at the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden, capital of Friesland. From this Saturday on, the reconstruction will be on show there.

The terp lady probably belonged to the local elite. Her necklace points in that direction. So does her being buried in a hollowed out oak tree. Trees were rare then in Friesland.
