The book Ejsbøl Mose contains one of Denmark's finest war booty deposits from the Roman and Germanic Iron Age and, like Illerup Ådal, it has been investigated exclusively using modern methods. Finds from the site include iron weapons, i.e. swords, lances and spears, shields, equestrian equipment, personal effects, precious metals, boat rivets etc.

There have been two major excavations in the bog, in 1955-64 and 1997-99, resulting in the recovery of around 3000 artefacts ─ about 1500 in each case.
This volume presents a new typological, chronological, scientific and cultural-historical analysis of the finds from both campaigns, as well as an account of the finds from the 1997-99 excavation, complete with catalogue and plates.
Three phases of offering or deposition were identified, termed Ejsbøl 1, Ejsbøl 2 and Ejsbøl 3.
Ejsbøl 1 is a modest deposit of lances and shields etc. dating from around the birth of Christ.
Ejsbøl 2 is the largest deposit and dates from around AD 300. It includes a broad spectrum of weapons, personal items and equestrian equipment. It appears virtually complete in character, corresponding to a military force of about 150 men, with a ratio between cavalry and infantry of 1:10.
Ejsbøl 3 is also a large, diverse deposit, containing weapons and some magnificent accessories. It dates from the early 5th century AD.
The book concludes with a discussion of the military capability of the respective forces.
