The backside of the solvogn (the sun carriage) (Nationalmuseet) in Denmark. c.1800 to 1600 BCE. Possibly a calendar -- the sum of an addition of the number of spirals in each circle of the disk, multiplied by the number of the circles in which they are found, counted from the middle, results in a total of 177, which comes very close to the number of days in six synodic months.

The ‘Solvognen’, also known as the ‘Trundholm Sun-Chariot’; excavated from a burial mound at Trundholm Mose in North-Western Zealand [Denmark]. This Nordic funerary artifact represents arguably one of the finest example of Norse craftsmanship from the Early Bronze-Age period.
