Thread: [BANNER] VIKING AGE SILVER TREASURE !!!

    Cool [BANNER] VIKING AGE SILVER TREASURE !!!

    Hi TNetters.

    After a snowy morning I went to the Viking Age trading place in the afternoon.
    A quite cold but very sunny pleasure, and I found some of the usual viking things in the area.
    Going back to the car I had a very clear signal that I thought to be a aluminum beer can,
    on a spot that my searcher collegue and I have passed at least a 100 times before.
    For some reason I started digging the signal anyway.
    In a depth of about 15 cm the signal got even clearer and I was about to cover the hole again,
    but something in the signal said, not aluminum, but something else, and maybe better?
    I got the object cirkulated with my pinpointer and I dug down a good bit of space away form the signal.
    As I carefully took op the earth i saw the top edge of the large bracelett.
    I almost lost my breath !!!
    Shortly after I actually lost it, as I checked the hole with my pinpointer.
    There were MORE signals !!!
    Right under the large bracelett came an other but smaller and of an other type.
    Then I called my searcher collegue. He had to witness this.
    Right under it lay another bracelet of the same type and the pendant.
    In the earth that was dug up I later found the 5 smal fragments of silver.
    I only dug down in a depth of about 30 cm.
    There were no more clear signals, and we are not allowed to dig under the ploughing soil.
    Deep down in the buttom of the hole I can hear a signal that sounds like "iron", but you never know if it is very deap.
    We put a plastic shopping bag in the whole to mark how deep we hat dug, and put the soil back in the hole.
    I tried to reach the archaeologist on the phone, but i think he was on holiday.
    The next day I spoke to an other archeologist at the museum who said that we had done just the right thing.
    They will speak about the next step tomorrow at the office and I am sure they will come and make a small excavation on the spot, to see if there is more deaper down.

    The treasure contains of:

    - One very heavy silver bracelett with a diameter 8 cm and a weight of 97,1 grams.
    - Two smaler winded, silver braceletts of 7 and 8 cm, weighing 17,3 and 11,0 grams.
    - One silver pendant of 2,7 cm in diameter, weighing 7,5 gram.
    - The 10 small fragments are weighing 2,3 grams. (only 5 of them shown in picture)

    This is without any doubt my best single find ever.

    All in all a treasure of:
    135,2 grams of wonderfull Viking Silver !!!

    I have made this model of how the items were situated in the soil.
    I guess it won´t be necessary to translate, you´ll understand.

    The items have roughly been dated to the years around 900 AD

    Me too, SS !!
    There are found lots of hacked arab coins in the area, but not in this hole. They just might stay in a pot further down in the soil ??
    I don´t know (yet) !

    I think you would have heard them. But just incase, the Archies may dig it out.

    One never knows. A huge viking silver treasure in Sweden (Gotland I think) was found laying on a large iron plate !
