Archaeologists Find Silver Treasure on German Baltic Island

Introduction:

 

BERLIN (AP) — Hundreds of 1,000-year-old silver coins, rings, pearls and bracelets linked to the era of Danish King Harald Gormsson have been found on the eastern German island of Ruegen in the Baltic Sea.

 

A single silver coin was first found in January by two amateur archaeologists, one of them a 13-year-old boy, in a field near the village of Schaprode. The state archaeology office then became involved and the entire treasure was uncovered by experts over the weekend, the Mecklenburg-West Pomerania state archaeology office said Monday.

 

“It’s the biggest trove of such coins in the southeastern Baltic region,” the statement said.

 

The office said the two amateur archeologists were asked to keep quiet about their discovery to give professionals time to plan the dig and were then invited to participate in the recovery.

 

“This was the (biggest) discovery of my life,” hobby archaeologist Rene Schoen told the German news agency dpa.
