Boy unearths lost treasure of 10th century Danish king

Boy unearths lost treasure of 10th century Danish king

Harald Bluetooth. "This treasure is the largest single find of Bluetooth coins in the southern Baltic Sea area and thus of outstanding importance", said excavation leader Michael Schirren of the German State Office for Culture and Historic Preservation.

The Danish king Harald Gormsson (c910-c987), known as Bluetooth for a discoloured tooth, was one of the first kings of Denmark, and is known for bringing Christianity to his country.

Luca saw a tiny piece of metal on the field and thought it was nothing more than aluminum garbage.

Continued excavations archeologists-professionals. On the island of rügen they managed to find over 600 coins, amulets in the shape of Thor's hammer, brooches, necklaces, pearls and rings.

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.

Malaschnitschenko and Schoen were invited to participate in the recovery.

This feat inspired Intel's Jim Kardach to name the tech service in honor of Bluetooth in 1997, given that "the new technology that would unify communications protocols like King Harald had united Scandinavia", according to Tom's Hardware, a Live Science sister site. Back in 2015, a man discovered Roman-era coins, mosaic glassware, and hobnails from a pair of shoes and last year, four 2,000 year gold torques were unearthed in England. He's also credited with uniting swathes of modern-day Norway, Germany, Sweden and Denmark under his rule.

"We have here the rare case of a discovery that appears to corroborate historical sources", archaeologist Detlef Jantzen said.

The technology, developed to wirelessly link computers with cellular devices, was named after Bluetooth because of his knack for unification.

The coins found allowed the archaeologists to date the find to the time Bluetooth would have been in the area.
