Metal detectors unearth pots of gold and the occasional can of worms.
In the autumn of 2016 Ben-Harry Johansen unearthed [on the island of Dønna, Helgeland, Norway] a 1,000 years old Viking iron sword that’s decorated with silver and copper inlays.
Johansen also unearthed a Roman coin said to be at least 1,840 years old.
The Gunnar Gap
These artefacts are separated by [about] 850 years in the mainstream history books but [strangely enough] they were both found 15-20 centimetres down in the soil of Dønna island.
In just a few days, Ben-Harry Johansen found both the 2,000-year-old coin and a richly decorated Viking sword on the inland at Våg in Dønna municipality on the Helgeland coast.
They lay shallow in the soil, 15-20 cm down in the so-called plow layer, where people with metal detector are allowed to search.
The sword is special because it has decor with silver and copper inlay. Most people did not have such great swords in the Viking Age. And the coin is the northernmost Roman coin we have found in Norway.
Har gjort oppsiktsvekkende myntfunn i Nordland

Together, these artefacts provide an illustrative example of the 700 Phantom Years Gunnar Heinsohn has found lurking in the mainstream history books.
These artefacts also indicate there are other problems with the textbooks.
The Broken Thread of History
Dønnes Church is a wonderful example of Norwegian church architecture where wishful thinking promotes a “probably built” date that ignores the stark reality that the thread of history is broken by the Hecker Horizon between 1300 and 1400 CE.
Dønnes Church is a 13th-century parish church of the Church of Norway in Dønna Municipality in Nordland county, Norway.
The church was probably built on the site of an even older church, sometime between 1200 and 1300.
Decorations include Madonna with Child from 1200’s, a figure of St. Laurentius (St. Lavrans) from the 1400s, and a carved Baroque style pulpit from the 1600s.
The “long church” is the most common type of church in Norway.
Until the 20th century, most churches were built from wood.
During the Middle Ages most churches were built from wood according to the stave church technique. Most masonry churches were originally constructed as long churches and a small number as classical basilicas.
Virtually no new churches were built during the 1400 and 1500s.
Only a handful new churches was built from the reformation to 1617.
After the Protestant Reformation when the construction of new (or replacement of old) churches was resumed in the 17th century, wood was still the dominant material but the log technique became dominant.
The Dønna island coin is from the era of the Iberian Emperors.
Marcus Aurelius (121-180) was Roman emperor from 161 to 180 and a Stoic philosopher. … Marcus studied Greek and Latin under tutors such as Herodes Atticus and Marcus Cornelius Fronto.
Marcus’ paternal family was of Roman Italo-Hispanic origins.
The gens Annia was of Italian origins (with legendary claims of descendance from Numa Pompilius) and a branch of it moved to Ucubi, a small town south east of Córdoba in Iberian Baetica.
This branch of the Aurelii based in Roman Spain, the Annii Veri, rose to prominence in Rome in the late 1st century AD.
Through his grandmother Rupilia, Marcus was a member of the Nerva-Antonine dynasty; the emperor Trajan’s sororal niece Salonia Matidia was the mother of Rupilia and her half-sister, Hadrian’s wife Sabina.
Marcus Cornelius Fronto (c. 100 – late 160s), best known as Fronto, was Roman grammarian, rhetorician, and advocate.
Of Berber origin, he was born at Cirta in Numidia.
The Nerva–Antonine dynasty was a dynasty of seven Roman Emperors who ruled over the Roman Empire from 96 CE to 192 CE.
These Emperors are Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius, Lucius Verus, Marcus Aurelius, and Commodus.
The Iberian Emperors indicate there was a Carthaginian Empire.
If the Romans didn’t arrive in Iberia then the associated Roman Republic narrative for Iberia is creative fiction.
This [very ironically] would rehouse the three Emperors [that were borrowed by the Roman Empire narrative] in the Carthaginian Empire.
A Carthaginian Empire that sailed the [inland] seas.
A Carthaginian Empire that sailed the seas looking for precious metals.
So I guess it should come as no surprise that the Middle and Eastern “Norse” settlements coincidently align with some of the richer gold sediments.
A Carthaginian Empire that’s missing in the mainstream textbooks.
