Another Heinsohn Hoard

Another Heinsohn Hoard

Three amateur archaeologists have unearthed a Viking-era gold treasure trove in Denmark.

Seven bracelets – six gold and and one silver – dating from 900 A.D. were recovered from a field in Jutland by the hobby treasure hunters known as Team Rainbow Power.

The artefacts date “from 900 A.D.” and a Viking expert is “unsure” why the bangles were buried.

The museum described some of the gold items as being designed in the ‘Jelling’ style – a variety associated with Viking elite.

According to Peter Pentz, a Viking expert and curator at Denmark’s National Museum, the bangles were likely ‘Oath rings’ given by tribal chiefs as presents to their loyal lieutenants.

Pentz, however, is unsure why the bangles were buried in the first place.

And the Viking expert is also mystified why the artefacts were “never retrieved”.

The treasure could have been buried in some sort of ritual in the 900s.

But it may also be the case that the treasure was buried because someone wanted to take care of it, and then for some reason never retrieved it.”

Perhaps the “experts” should get acquainted with the Heinsohn Horizon.

The stratigraphy of Aachen, for example, illustrates Gunnar Heinsohn’s central theme that the mainstream has mistakenly populated 700 phantom years [in the 1st millennium] with Roman Architecture and Artefacts from Antiquity i.e. 1st – 3rd centuries.

The British “experts” were confronted with the same problem when the Silverdale Hoard was unearthed in Lancashire during 2011.

The Silverdale Hoard is a collection of over 200 pieces of silver jewellery and coins discovered near Silverdale, Lancashire, England, in September 2011.

The items were deposited together in and under a lead container buried about 16 inches (41 cm) underground which was found in a field by a metal detectorist.

Silverdale Hoard

The hoard includes Arabic, Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-Viking and Viking coins.

They date to around AD 900 and include coins of Alfred the Great and the Danish-ruled
Kingdom of Northumbria.

One coin of a previously unknown design carries the name AIRDECONUT.

This appears to be a rendition of the Scandinavian name Harthacnut (“tough-knot”).

The name Airdeconut is previously unrecorded and appears to refer to an otherwise unknown Viking ruler.

He is believed to be the first newly identified medieval ruler in England in the last fifty years, and the first “new” Viking king to be identified since 1840.

But they decided the Silverdale Hoard was hidden because competing Germanic tribes were engaged in a turf war [aka “intense conflict”] in northern England.

It is believed to date to around AD 900, a time of intense conflict between the Anglo-Saxons and the Danish settlers of northern England.

Clearly, the mainstream thought this was an intelligent decision because the Vikings have gained a reputation for be very careless with [and very forgetful about] their hoards in northern England.

The Cuerdale Hoard is a hoard of more than 8,600 items, including silver coins, English and Carolingian jewellery, hacksilver and ingots.

It was discovered on 15 May 1840 on the southern bank of a bend of the River Ribble, in an area called Cuerdale in South Ribble near to the city of Preston, Lancashire, England.

The coins in the hoard are from three sources, represented in the proportions 5:1:1.
Viking kingdoms of eastern England are represented in the largest portion; the other two portions are of Alfred’s Wessex and of coins from foreign sources, which include Byzantine, Scandinavian, Islamic, Papal, North Italian and Carolingian mintings, many of which last are from Aquitaine, perhaps, Richard Hall suggests, acquired there in Viking raids of 898.

It is believed the coins were buried between 903 and 910 AD, soon after the Vikings had been expelled from Dublin in 902.

The Vale of York Hoard, also known as the Harrogate Hoard and the Vale of York Viking Hoard, is a 10th-century Viking hoard of 617 silver coins and 65 other items. It was found undisturbed in 2007 near the town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire, England.

The hoard consists of 617 silver coins and 65 other items, including ornaments, ingots and precious metal, which were hidden in a gilt silver vessel lined with gold (variously identified as a cup, bowl, or pot) made in France or Germany around 900 and decorated with “vines, leaves and six hunting scenes showing lions, stags, and a horse”.

The coins date from the late 9th and early 10th centuries, providing a terminus post quem for dating the hoard.

The first theory as to a likely tenth-century occasion for such a careful burying was that it had belonged to a wealthy Viking leader during the unrest that followed the conquest of the Viking kingdom of Northumbria in the year 927 by the Anglo-Saxon king of a unified England, Athelstan (924–939).

The hoard included objects from many diverse locations, including Samarkand in present-day Uzbekistan, North Africa, Afghanistan, Russia, Ireland, Scandinavia, and continental Europe “illustrating the breadth of the Vikings’ travels and trade connections.”

But the Vikings don’t seem to have been quite so bright.

Firstly, [according to the mainstream narrative] their long-haul multi-stop international itinerary [“Uzbekistan, North Africa, Afghanistan, Russia, Ireland, Scandinavia, and continental Europe”] didn’t include any home port stopovers to replace the dead [and injured] whilst they cached [and/or enjoyed] their newly [and violently] acquired wealth.

Secondly, continually lugging around their long-haul multi-stop booty [from “Uzbekistan, North Africa, Afghanistan, Russia, Ireland, Scandinavia, and continental Europe”] must have been a seriously risk and a very heavy burden that limited their looting and pillaging capabilities.

On the other hand:

Perhaps it’s time the “experts” realised the people of northern Britain actually owned [and traded] the artefacts that have been found in northern Britain.

I believe this revolutionary concept is called evidence based archaeology.
