According to the national stats agency, Copenhagen is by far the favourite city for Brits who've chosen to live in Denmark. The capital is followed by second-largest city Aarhus, also a university city. Copenhagen has almost six times as many British citizens as Aarhus, with 5,920 in Copenhagen, and 1,097 in Aarhus. The next-most populous municipalities for Britons are Gentofte, with 755, and Frederiksberg with 661. These are also considered part of the greater Copenhagen area. These are followed by Odense with 563, 367 in Aalborg, 356 in Esbjerg, 278 in Lyngby-Taarbæk and 262 in Rudersdal. The municipality with the fewest number of Brits is Læsø with only 3.

A plumber and a machine operator in Aalborg made a sensational discovery when they discovered an intact and well-preserved sword while at work on Tuesday. After making the remarkable find, Jannic Vestergaard and Henning Nøhr called the Historical Museum of Northern Jutland, which later confirmed the discovery via its website. Kenneth Nielsen, an archaeologist from the museum, examined the 1.1 metre-long sword and quickly concluded it was of 14th-century Medieval origin. The sword was found in ground on top of the oldest layer of paving on Algade, one of the northern city’s central streets. “Discoveries from here generally point in the direction of the 1300s, so the sword must have ended in the ground in that century,” Nielsen said in the press statement.
