Amateur archaeologists find ancient treasure from era of Danish king

An amateur archaeologist and a 13-year-old boy found a silver coin on the Baltic island of Rügen in January when scanning a field with metal detectors.

However, when they took it to the State Office, the find was revealed to be much more - a silver coin, later identified as hailing from the Viking Age trading settlement of Hedeby.

The Baltic island of Rugen, now in Germany, has proved to be a fertile hunting-ground for archaeologists and treasure hunters when it comes to finding relics of Denmark's Viking past.

The State Office requested the pair keep their find under wraps to allow time for excavation.

A 13-year-old boy and an amateur archaeologist have helped to uncover a unique stash of lost treasure thought to be associated with the legendary Danish King "Harry Bluetooth", who brought Christianity to Denmark in the 10th century.

A dig covering 400 square meters (4,300 square feet) that finally started over the weekend by the regional archaeology service has since uncovered a trove believed to be linked to the Danish king who reigned from around 958 to 986.

The oldest coin found in the trove is a Damascus dirham dating to 714 while the most recent is a penny dating to 983. That may offer proof that Bluetooth fled the area to Pomerania after his son, Sven Gabelbart, led a rebellion against him, according to the Telegraph.

"We have here a rare case, when a discovery seems to be related to historical sources", says the chief archaeologist of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Detlef Jantzen.

The company named the technology, developed to wirelessly unite computers with cellular devices, after the king for his ability to unite ancient Scandinavia.

Other treasures linked to the king have been found in the area, notably the spectacular Hiddensee treasure, containing both Christian crosses and Thor's hammer symbols wrought in gold.
