Viking Remains Found in Warburton, England

Manchester Online: Archaeologists from the University of Manchester have discovered both Viking and Roman artifacts at a site near the village of Warburton, England. A team of researchers and archaeologists from the Warburton Heritage Fund and Manchester University believe that Viking longships sailed up the Mersey River and settled in the area around the village of Warburton in Cheshire. One of the recent finds was a 10th century Viking buckle with a runic design. The dig also uncovered a first century Roman military pendant.
