Hunting tools tell how first people in Denmark lived

A Danish town says archaeologists have found some 13,000-year-old hunting tools that give "a fantastic insight" into how some of the first people in Denmark lived.

The municipality of Horsens says in a statement that , reindeer antlers, "well-preserved flora and fauna relics" and a pike skeleton were found in connection with the construction of a bypass road south of the town some 170 kilometers (106 miles) west of Copenhagen.

Horsens Museum spokeswoman Lone Seeberg said Friday the items, described as "some of the earliest traces of human beings in Denmark," were found in an ice age lake in December.
