Gold Viking ring unexpectedly uncovered in stash of ‘cheap jewelry’ from online auction

A substantial, gold Viking ring crafted from twisted metal strands turned up in a extremely unpredicted area: a heap of affordable jewelry a female in Norway bought at an on the net auction. Archaeologists assume the ring may perhaps be much more than 1,000 yrs previous and once belonged to a highly effective Viking chief. 

Mari Ingelin Heskestad, who lives in western Norway, advised the Bergensavisen (opens in new tab), a day by day newspaper in Bergen, that she’d observed the gold ring between numerous pieces of inexpensive jewelry and trinkets that had been being auctioned with each other online.
