In Germany found the treasure of the Viking king

Legendary Danish king Bluetooth’s trove unearthed in Germany

The office said the two amateur archaeologists were asked to keep quiet about their discovery to give professionals time to plan the dig.

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

Further excavations carried out over the 400 square metre site by a larger team over the following three months brought to light around 600 silver coins and a number of Thor's hammers, brooches, beads, rings and torques.

Around one hundred coins out of the treasure trove belonged into the Danish King Harald Bluetooth, whose identify is utilized in advanced bluetooth mobile technologies.

René Schön and his pupil Luca Malaschnitschenko were using metal detectors on Germany's Rügen island when they found a piece of metal.

Jewellery linked to the era of Danish King "Harald Bluetooth", Gormsson, who lived in the 10th century, has also been found on a German Island.

Experts believe the treasure may have been buried in the 980s. 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.

"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. This is because of his impeccable communication skills which helped him unite modern-day Norway, Germany, Sweden and Denmark.

Archaeologists said about 100 of the silver coins were probably from the reign of Harald Gormsson, who introduced Christianity to Denmark. He ruled between 958 and 986 and came to be known as Bluetooth because of his dead, blue-ish looking tooth.

Bluetooth was said to be a good networker and communicator, which is why he shot to posthumous fame by serving as a project name for the wireless technology, which eventually stuck.
