The town where the children live is located 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Archaeologists believe that "never before has Viking jewelry of this kind been found in northern Norway".
The boys were not particularly impressed with the jewelry. In an interview, they said, "We wish we had found a sword, or a helm, or some armor. Or a real dinosaur bone!".
Archaeologists, however, are much more excited. Other objects were unearthed, including a heavy cross, possibly with relics inside. Full scale excavations are planned for next spring.
