    Background: Children from 11 different countries on Monday and Tuesday (31 July and 1 August) visited a reconstructed Iron Age village built by Danish archaeologists near Lejre. The children have been invited to Denmark by the town of Gladsaxe, just outside Copenhagen, to take part in a two-week assembly aimed at better understanding between nations.

    The children, whose average age is about 11, come from Solna. Sweden; Ski, Norway; Hamburg, West Germany; Wilmersdorf, West Berlin; Biel, Switzerland; Paisley, Scotland; Koszalin, Poland; Narssaq, Greenland; Apeldorn. Holland; and Highland Park. Michigan, USA.

    During their stay the children are living in a school at Gladsaxe where each evening they take it in turn to entertain each other with some activity native to their countries.

    For their visit to Lejre the children were split into two groups. On Monday the party included children from Scotland and America. The next day it was the turn of those from Holland, Switzerland, Poland and West Germany.
