One of the Skudelev ships.

The Skuldelev ships is a term used for 5 Viking ships recovered from Peberrenden by Skuldelev, c. 20 km north of Roskilde in Denmark. In 1962, the remains of the ships were excavated over 4 months. The recovered pieces constitute 5 types of ships and have been dated to the 11th century. They were allegedly sunk to prevent attacks from the sea.

Information on "Skuldelev 4" is omitted, as the discovery of a fourth ship was found to be a part of Skuldelev 2. The Skuldelev ships, which provide a good source of information about the shipbuilding traditions of the late Viking period, are today exhibited at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde.

Denomination 100.

Among the new security features is a window thread with a moving wave pattern. Another feature is a new, sophisticated hologram that reflects light in different colours. The new banknotes will also have the hidden security thread.

The old Little Belt bridge I am near old Little Belt Bridge at 1 of September 2014The Little Belt Bridge (Gamle Lillebæltsbro), also known as The Old Little Belt Bridge, is a truss bridge over the Little Belt strait in Denmark. The first bridge to have been constructed over the strait, it spans from Snoghøj on Jutland to Kongebrogaarden on Funen. It is owned by the state and Banedanmark, the Danish railway authority, is responsible for its maintenance. The bridge was the first step in linking the three parts of Denmark by road, with the second step completed with the Great Belt Bridge in June 1998; previously, only boats and later ferries had been used to transport people over the belts.

The Hindsgavl Dagger

The magnificent dagger from Hindsgavl with its blade less than 1 cm thick is the finest example of the flintworkers outstanding skills at the end of the Stone Age.

It was found around 1876 on tihe island Fænø in the Little Belt. The dagger type is called a "fishtail dagger", because of the fishtail-formed hilt. Pressure-flaked daggers mark the beginning of the end of the Stone Age, and are the reason why the period from 2400-1800 BC is called the Dagger Period.

Comments:

I got this note in the city Tonder (south-west Denmark) in May 2012.

The theme of the new banknotes is Danish bridges and the surrounding landscapes, or details from these landscapes.

The artist Karin Birgitte Lund has chosen to interpret this theme in two ways: bridges as links between various parts of Denmark and as links between the past and the present. The present is represented by the bridges, the past by five distinctive prehistoric objects found near the bridges.

Put into circulation May 4, 2010.
