1000-Year-Old King Bluetooth's Treasure Discovered By 13-Year-Old Boy

17 April 2018

The 400 square metre dig has so far yielded braided necklaces, pearls, brooches, a Thor's hammer, rings and up to 600 chipped coins.

Archaeologists are now digging at the site - and have found a hoard of treasure linked to the Danish king known as "Harald Bluetooth", from whom the wireless technology gets its name.

The find was made in January when the boy, Luca Malaschnitschenko, and hobby archaeologist Rene Schoen were using metal detectors in search of lost treasures, the Associated Press reported.

The Mecklenburg-West Pomerania state archaeology office said: "It's the biggest trove of such coins in the south-eastern Baltic region".

The move was part of a joint Russian-U.S. deal that averted military action threatened by then-president Barack Obama. Johnson said: "The world is united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, but especially against civilians".

More than 100 of the coins have Christian crosses on them and are believed to have been minted in the kingdom of Bluetooth.

They have found almost 600 silver coins, more than 100 of which come from King Bluetooth's era.

"This is the largest single find of Bluetooth coins in the southern Baltic Sea region and is therefore of outstanding importance", excavation director Michael Schirren told DPA. According to the Guardian, the oldest of the coins comes from the year 714, while the most recent one dates back to the year 983.

Harald Bluetooth, which introduced Christianity to Denmark in the tenth century, is an important historical figure in Northern Europe.

In the early 1870s what is now known as the Hiddensee treasure was discovered. He's also credited with uniting swathes of modern-day Norway, Germany, Sweden and Denmark under his rule.

The site of the treasure trove, Schaprode, is near where a 16-piece gold hoard dating from Bluetooth's reign was found in the 19th century.

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