Amateur Archaeologist And 13-Year-Old Student Discover Trove Tied To Danish King

Tenth-century silver items are pictured on a table in Schaprode, northern Germany, on Friday. A 13-year-old boy and a hobby archaeologist have unearthed a "significant" trove in Germany which may have belonged to the legendary Danish King Harald Bluetooth.

The duo uncovered thousand-year-old silver coins, pearls, rings and a hammer in northern Germany. They include coins from the reign of Harald Bluetooth of Denmark — possibly from his own trove.
