Sweden's most splendid proto-prehistoric object is a 1500 year-old gold collar from Ålleberg which was made so skillfully that today’s goldsmiths do not know how it was made. Made of seven tubular rings, each divided into halves and joined together by a hinge. The spaces between the rings are filled with small miniature figures, humans and animals, almost invisible to the eye. Some have suggested that together they tell a story. Only 9 inches in diameter some question how it was worn.
