Lost Viking Mountain Pass Revealed by Melting Ice in Norway
The melting ice in Norway has revealed an ancient route in the Jotunheimen mountains. There, scientists have found artifacts from over a 2,000 year period, dating back to the Bronze Age. More from MOTHERBOARD:
“Artifacts exposed by the melting ice indicate usage from c. AD 300–1500, with a peak in activity c. AD 1000 during the Viking Age—a time of increased mobility, political centralization and growing trade and urbanization in Northern Europe,” according to the study, led by Lars Pilø co-director of the Glacier Archaeology Program in Norway.
