Viking boat graves found in Sweden
Extracts of an article coming in CNN ...
"Archaeologists have uncovered two rare Viking boat graves in the Swedish village of Gamla Uppsala.
It is a small group of people who were buried in this way. You can suspect that they were distinguished people in the society of the time since burial ships in general are very rare, archeologist Anton Seiler said in a news release...
...The archaeologists also found a sword, an ornate comb, a spear and part of a shield in the intact boat. The identity of the man remains unknown."
One should expect that evolution on this subject will soon appear in various sources out there.
