A new research project funded by the Krogager Foundation will seek to uncover deeper insights into the Vikings’ worldview
The National Museum of Antiquities of the Netherlands had added a recently found silver ring to its medieval collection. Dated to the mid-10th century, museum curators believe the new find was worn as a pendant, indicated by wear marks on the inside edge of the ring.
Museum curator of ancient texts, Magnus Magnusson, spent two weeks analyzing the artifact and concluded it is a lost Icelandic Saga.
Archeologists discovered the woman’s burial had actually been placed within an older, pre-existing burial. Think Russian dolls, but with Viking ships.
