Filmforum, Germany / Denmark 2020, 30 Min., engl., ger., dan. OV, ger. st

During the Iron Age, the Nydam Bog was a holy place. A boat found there is today on display in Gottorf Castle near Schleswig. How did it get there and what role does it play in the cultural ties between Germany and Denmark? A Danish researcher follows the boat’s traces in a region that’s been separated by a border for a century, but that still has many commonalities.
