    New Viking Treasure Discovered in Norway (With Video!)

    New Viking Treasure Discovered in Norway

    The unseasonably warm weather might make meteorologists, climate researchers, and even the odd man and woman on the street a tad nervous. But field archaeologists, digging through what would normally be frozen solid earth covered in a thick layer of snow in the middle of the Norwegian winter, might be excused for thanking God, or Odin, the king of the old Norse gods, for the helping hand.

    On the second of January, scientists from the archaeological museum in Stavanger, Norway made a major discovery of what is believed to be a Viking burial site at Fr°yland in the western parts of Norway. The grave sites excavated so far date back to the 8th and 9th century and are very well preserved.

    At first glance, you'd thought that they found the ornaments from a brass monkey...then in the last pic you see the outstanding craftsmanship of the pin.

    Outstanding discovery.

    Cool!
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.
