Oldgammel solstorm og 107.000 nye fund fra Ribe ændrer den danske vikinge-historie

Det var ikke handel med Mellemøsten, der kickstartede vikingetiden, konkluderer danske forskere i nyt Nature-studie.

The Viking-age emporium Ribe, Denmark, has preserved an extremely detailed stratigraphy of housefloors, workshops and waste deposits from the period c. 700 – c. 900 CE. This has enabled the researchers in the Northern Emporium Project to chart the arrival of trade goods during the time when Viking-Age sea-trade emerged. The layers next to the hand of the archaeologist in the centre of the picture is where the 775 CE Miyaki event is detected by radiocarbon dating. Photo: The Museum of Southwest Jutland
