The skeleton was found from Rochlitz, south of Halle in eastern Germany, while construction was underway to build a new rail track.

The Middle Bronze Age woman had been buried wearing an elaborate headband made up of tiny bronze spirals, the 'Daily Mail' reported.

Staff at the State Museum of Prehistory in Halle, where the skeleton is now on display as part of its permanent exhibition, said similar spirals uncovered in the past had been found separate and loose.

The discovery has provided historians an insight into how the spirals were worn in the Middle Bronze Age, Tomoko Emmerling, the museum's press officer, said.

The ancient skeleton, which was excavated within a block in 2008, went on display at the German museum, the report said.

It is among thousands of artifacts in a new section of its permanent exhibition entitled 'Glutgeboren' or 'Ember Born'.

The display includes items from the middle and late Bronze Age as well as from the pre-Roman Iron Age.
