Scandinavia and the World comics

Last time I’d encountered these, they were at this now defunct site, and there were only a handful of them.

Viking treasure haul unearthed in Scotland


A haul of Viking treasure has been unearthed from a field in south west Scotland by an amateur using a metal detector.

Derek McLennan, a retired businessman from Ayrshire, made the find in Dumfriesshire in September.

In total, more than 100 items were recovered, including armbands, a cross and brooches.

Experts have said the discovery is one of the most important Viking hoards ever found in Scotland.
