Evidence of habitation exists from the Boiling period (12500–12000 BC). By 7700 BC reindeer hunters were settled on the Jutland Peninsula and around 3900 BC agriculture developed. Metal tools and weapons were imported in the Dagger Period (c. 2000 BC) but established trading stations on the coast did not appear until around AD 300. The first towns developed in the Germanic Iron Age (AD 400–750).
