English: Nydam Mose is a bog situated in Øster Sottrup, Sundeved, Denmark, eight kilometres from Sønderborg. The bog, which in the Iron Age was a sacred lake, is renowned for its rich sacrificial finds from the period 200-400 A.D. "The Nydam Boat" is the most famous of the finds, and is on display at Gottorp Castle in Slesvig. The special fascination of the Nydam Bog compared to other sacrificial bogs is that this archaeological find has played an important role in the Danish national fight for Southern Jutland.
