The coils, made from thin filaments about 3cm (1in) long, date from between 900BC and 700BC, according to Flemming Kaul of the National Museum in Copenhagen. But he and his colleagues aren't quite sure what they have found. "The fact is we don't know what they were for, although I'm inclined to think they were part of a priest-king's robes, perhaps a french on a head-piece or parasol, or maybe woven into cloth," he says on the museum's website. The gold spirals will go on display at Skaelskor City Museum next week.

Strange looking, and scientists are just in a wild ass guess phase where they pretend it's one thing or another without having any real clue.

Octo your scrap metal lathe filings is a very keen and eye and mind opening observation, but their relatively consistent size and shape is screaming machine made, not by hand tools and so this is probably more out of place out of time artifacts, more currently enforced belief structure crushing evidence for advanced pre ice age civilizations long ago destroyed and probably much older than we are misled to believe...

These would seem to qualify as OOPA's or out of place artifacts. Archaeology's thorn in the side that forces anyone who looks into the field of archaeology to also question it's validity.
You can't have it both ways, yet... here it is, and these are not isolated incidents. All findings touted serve the current paradigm, the rest are ignored and swept under the rug.

Well, they say the spirals are made from flattened gold threads, which it very well may be. But the researchers referred to in this are drawing some pretty fantastic conclusions;
Quote:Bronze Age craftsmen were very skillful with gold and other precious metals, as evidenced by this and other finds. Last year, Discovery News reported a study that claimed it was children who had made the finest, most intricate details, based on examination of the Stonehenge treasure – a collection of jewellery and daggers found in a burial mound containing the remains of a man dated to around 4,000 years ago.

The metal decorations and the daggers featured stunningly intricate elements, including 140,000 miniature metal studs in the handle of one dagger which were each thinner than a hair, at a density of 1,000 studs per square centimetre. The work on this decoration, from the making of the super thin metal wire to the placing of the studs into the wooden handle could not have been done by an adult in an era long before the invention of the magnifying glass. Therefore, the researchers surmised, the most likely craftsmen were children around the age of ten and teenagers who were specially trained to work metal. Alternatively, very short-sighted adults could also have worked such decorations. The crafting of these elements was a severe strain on the eyes and most likely left the craftsmen nearly blind.
