One way to understand Denmark quickly at a glance is to visit the National Museum, which can be found in the Prince's Palace, next to the Frederiksholm canal and was the royal residence in the 18th century. This is a ethnographic collection that was founded using funds from the Danish monarchy: antiques, weapons, jewellery, charms, mummies and objects that date back 14,000 years. Among the most interesting objects are the remains of a Bronze Age teenager buried in a wooden coffin, known as Egtvedpigen, with the skeletal remains of a child next to the body, suggesting the possibility of human sacrifices. The National Museum of Copenhagen covers Danish history and also displays treasures from other cultures, such as Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Oriental.
