13-Year-Old Boy Finds Treasure Trove of 1,000-Year-Old Silver Coins

“Archaeologists said about 100 of the silver coins are probably from the reign of Harald Gormsson, better known as “Harald Bluetooth,” who lived in the 10th century and introduced Christianity to Denmark” writes Kirsten Grieshaber for popularmechanics.com. 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.His nickname came from the fact he had a dead tooth that looked bluish, but it’s now best known for the wireless Bluetooth technology invented by Swedish telecom company Ericsson.
