Viking ship discovered buried in Norway

Viking ship discovered buried in Norway

A huge underground discovery by scientists in Norway teaches us that you never know what kind of secrets are hidden just below the surface.

Archeologists used cutting-edge technology to make the startling discovery: a rare Viking longship – buried less than 2-feet below the topsoil.

A high-resolution, ground-penetrating georadar shows the nearly 66-foot-long ship is at least partially preserved.

The Norwegian Institute for Culture Heritage Research said only three other well-preserved Viking longships have ever been discovered in Norway.

Experts won’t immediately unearth the ship, but they will digitally map the site.
