Sixth Grader Finds Viking Ring

On a class trip to Borre National Park, a Norwegian sixth grader found a 1,000 year old Viking ring. A class trip to the Borre National Park was supposed to teach children about archaeology, but one sixth grader hit the jackpot. Magnus Hempel Naess was digging near a ship mound when he noticed something shiny. It turned out to be a woman's ring from the Viking age, possibly part of the 1100 year old ship burial.
