German Ironage (400-800 AD).
The Golden Horns of Gallehus were two
horns made of sheet gold, discovered in
Gallehus, north of Møgeltønder in Southern
Jutland, Denmark. The horns were found in
1639 and in 1734, respectively, at locations
only some 15–20 metres apart. The original
horns were stolen and melted down in 1802.
Casts made of the horns in the late 18th century
were also lost. Nevertheless, replicas
of the original horns were produced and are
exhibited at the National Museum of Denmark,
Copenhagen. These replicas also have
a history of having been stolen and retrieved
twice, in 1993 and in 2007.
