Archaeologists Express Excitement Over Britain's "Most Important Viking Burial Site"

Metal detector hobbyists in Cumbria, England may have found the country's "most important Viking burial site."

The burial site may be so rich in treasures that archaeologists working there have kept its location a secret. What is known is that the barrow is located in Cumbria, dates to the 10th century, and is Viking in origin. So far researchers have discovered swords, jewelry and other objects leading them to believe that the barrow was of "high status."
