Gold Viking ring unexpectedly observed in stash of ‘cheap jewelry’ from on-line auction

A substantial, gold Viking ring crafted from twisted steel strands turned up in a extremely unexpected put: a heap of affordable jewelry a woman in Norway acquired at an online auction. Archaeologists believe the ring may possibly be more than 1,000 yrs outdated and as soon as belonged to a strong Viking chief. 

Mari Ingelin Heskestad, who lives in western Norway, instructed the Bergensavisen (opens in new tab), a every day newspaper in Bergen, that she’d found the gold ring between various pieces of low cost jewellery and trinkets that have been becoming auctioned with each other on the internet.
