Germans find 'Harald Bluetooth' medieval treasure

Parts of the silver treasures found in northern Germany which may have belonged to the legendary Danish king Harald Bluetooth who brought Christianity to Denmark

13-year-old boy and an amateur archaeologist have helped to uncover a unique stash of lost treasure thought to be associated with the legendary Danish King "Harald Bluetooth", who brought Christianity to Denmark in the 10th century.

"This trove is the biggest single discovery of Bluetooth coins in the southern Baltic sea region and is therefore of great significance", said lead archaeologist Michael Schirren.

When they washed their find, they realised it was a piece of silver, according to local media. 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.

"We have here a rare case, when a discovery seems to be related to historical sources", says the chief archaeologist of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Detlef Jantzen.

Malaschnitschenko and Schoen were invited to participate in the recovery.


The archaeologists excavated numerous necklaces, bracelets, rings, coins and a hammer on the island of Rügen near the village of Schaprode.

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.

An excavation of an area covering 400 square metres determined that the treasure was probably buried in the late 980s, the period of Harald Gormsson, one of the last Viking kings.

After converting to Christianity in 950, he set up bishoprics in Denmark, consolidated his kingdom with forts and seized some territory in Norway and north Germany. 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. The symbol of Bluetooth is also a mixture of two letters of runic alphabets representing the initials of King Harald.
