"Nerdy" Danish teen finds Viking hoard

Friends of Danish teenager Michael Stokbro Larsen call him "nerdy," but the 16-year-old had the last laugh recently when he discovered a hoard of 365 artifacts from the Viking era including 60 coins bearing the imprint of King Harald Bluetooth. (photos)

Larsen discovered the coins through the use of a metal dectector in a field in northern Denmark. Experts consider the find “another important piece in the puzzle” of history, and believe the hoard to be the largest such find since 1939.
