Iron Age Find In Denmark

From Archeologists report finding a well preserved woman's body in an area outside Copenhagen, Denmark. It appears the woman died around 400 AD.

"'What we find interesting is her bones are well-preserved and she had jewelry - glass pearls and a metal chain - which could indicate that she was wealthy,' said (Tom) Giersing, who headed the excavation."
She was wealthy? And only had glass pearls and a metal chain? Wow, I guess our poor today should consider themselves lucky. Our poor have more than nearly everyone who was rich had in ancient times.
