Pre-Viking Iron Age settlement will give a glimpse of life in Norway 1,500 years ago


A 1,500-year-old settlement in Norway is being excavated, and researchers expect it will be a rich source of information. The area had been underwater at one time, so the soil is composed of seashells. Most Norwegian soil is too acidic for bones to survive beyond the medieval era, but this soil has preserved many animal, fish and bird bones. The archaeologists also expect a cemetery and harbor are nearby.#norway #archaeology #news #excavation
