Face of a wealthy Bronze Age bohemian in an impressive reconstruction

Researchers have reconstructed the face of a petite, dark-haired woman who was one of the richest residents of Bronze Age Bohemia.

The woman was buried with five bronze bracelets, two gold earrings and a three-strand necklace made of more than 400 amber beads. Buried with her were three bronze sewing needles. She was part of the Únětice culture, a group of Early Bronze Age peoples in Central Europe known for their metal artifacts, including ax heads, daggers, bracelets, and necklaces made of twisted metal called torcs.
