1,000 Year-old Viking Jewelry Found On Danish Farm

Archaeologists have uncovered several pieces of elite Viking jewelry on a modest farm in Denmark that date back between the late seventh to the early 11th centuries.The site, called Vestervang, is located across a farmstead in Zealand, Denmark. It was slated for residential development, but work in the area revealed traces of a late Iron Age settlement — including the remains of 18 longhouses and 21 pit houses. These habitations weren’t constructed at the same time, but were built up over time in six phases over the span of four centuries.
