Viking jewelry finds highlight grave excavations

Archaeologists working on the excavations of burial sites near Fr√łyland in Rogaland County, Norway were excited to find many artifacts including glass beads, scissors and household utensils.

Experts believe that the graves belonged to a wealthy family which was able to bury costly items with their dead. "The size, quality and design of the jewellery is highly unusual," said archaeologist Olle Hemdorff about a woman's grave. "She took with her many things."
