7. When a Pile of Cheap Costume Jewellery bought Online turns Out to Contain a Rare Viking-Era Gold Ring
A young Norwegian woman, Mari Ingelin Heskestad purchased a collection of cheap jewelry from an online auction house, only to notice one object stuck out. Heskestad had an inkling the twisted gold ring was something unique. “It was really heavy, and shiny,” she told the newspaper Bergensavisen, BA. “It looked very special.”
But instead of bringing it straight to a dealer or auction house to cash in, she delivered it to the municipal cultural heritage department of Vestland County, in Western Norway. Karoline Hareide Breivik, the acting head of the department, confirmed in a statement that the ring dated to the late Iron Age or Viking Age. The ring will go on view at the University Museum in Bergen, Norway, later this fall.
