The Trundholm Chariot – now in the collection of the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen – was found in September 1902 in a peat bog on the Trundholm moor in northwestern Zealand (Sjælland), Denmark.

The Sun Chariot – a beautiful example of prehistoric Northern European sculpture was made in the Early Bronze Age around 1400 BC.
The artifact’s elegant spiral ornamentation that graces the golden sun disc reveals its Nordic origin. The Sun Chariot consists of the solar disk, the axle, and four wheels with spokes and supports the idea that the sun was drawn on its eternal journey by a divine horse.
