The Sun-Chariot from Trundholm is world famous, and the finding place is marked with a monument. In the same way the finding places for The golden horns from Gallehus, the Egtved girl, the Dejbjerg chariots, the Gundestrup cauldron, the Nydam boat and many other finds have been remembered during the 20th Century with memorials, often a stone monument.
Which finds have become national symbols or have received their own memorial? When did it happend? Who took the initiative? Why excactly these finds? Why raise memorials over archaeological finds? The memorials over archaeological finds in Denmark are related to a debate on canonization and nationalism, currently a topic because of the Danish Cultural Canon and also the choice of Danish World Heritage places.
