An amateur archaeologist in Denmark has discovered a collection of gold artifacts that can provide information about the pre-Viking period of this country.
How lucky could an amateur archaeologist in Denmark be to discovered 22 gold objects embossed with symbols from the sixth century AD in Denmark, according to ISNA, quoting AFP?
According to experts, these treasures could be the data that provides information about the people before the Danish Vikings.
Some of these works are engraved with symbols and inscriptions that seem to be about the rulers of that time. These works are also reminiscent of the myths of the people of the Scandinavian countries. One of these works also refers to “Constantine,” the Roman emperor.
Experts believe that the symbols on the engraved works have made the works valuable, not the number of works.
Among them is a gold medal the size of a small plate.
Preliminary studies suggest that the artifacts were gifts to the gods at a certain time when the weather in that part of northern Europe, Denmark, was colder due to the ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland.
According to one of the archaeologists involved in the project, there are many symbols in these works. They say that they have not seen some of these signs before, in other similar treasures. Therefore, they claim they can provide new information about Denmark and, to be specific, the age of Vikings.
Some of the things that this archaeologist from Denmark has found have engraved shapes and words on them. These elements are like symbols and inscriptions that seem to be about the kings of that age. These works are also evocative of the tales of the people of the Scandinavian lands. One of those crafts also applies to “Constantine,” the Roman emperor.
These works will be out for the public soon. They say that an exhibition in the museum of the city of “Weile” from February 2022, will do the trick.
