Estudiante de arqueología en Noruega descubre tesoro vikingo.

El sueño de cualquier arqueólogo es involucrarse en un descubrimiento inesperado y para lograr la hazaña como estudiante, es bastante raro.

Pero esto es exactamente lo que le sucedió al estudiante de maestría noruego de nombre Tor-Kjetil Krokmyrdal, de la Universidad Ártica de Noruega, UIT por sus siglas.

En su tesis de maestría en la materia de arqueología, reveló que existía un lugar en donde se realizaba el intercambio comercial de la región y que era desconocido dentro de la Era Vikinga.

Este se ubicaba en lo que hay es la granja Sandtorg en Tjelsund, entre las ciudades de Harstad y Narvik, en el norte de Noruega.

El Hallazgo del Tesoro Vikingo.

Con la ayuda de un aparato detector de metales, el estudiante noruego encontró un tesoro vikingo: joyas, monedas y piezas de plata utilizadas para el pago, junto con muchos otros objetos importados de las Islas Británicas, Finlandia y otros lugares.

Monedas y joyas de origen árabe y asiático se encontraban entre el hallazgo. Lo que significa que otras culturas acudían al lugar a comercializar productos de intercambio.

Se sabía que en algún momento, hubo actividad comercial vikinga en el norte de Noruega, en las islas de Lofoten, que ofrecían ricas oportunidades de pesca y agricultura.

La actividad vikinga era más extensa.

El descubrimiento de objetos más al este sugiere que el mapa de la Edad Vikinga en el norte de Noruega era más extenso, y más antiguo, de lo que los investigadores pensaban anteriormente.

Krokmyrdal encontró objetos que pueden datarse desde los primeros años de la Era Vikinga en el siglo IX.

Esto haría de Sandtorg el lugar comercial más antiguo conocido en el norte del país, según el arqueólogo Marte Spangen, quien supervisó el trabajo de tesis.

Este descubrimiento significa que a partir de ahora, los investigadores deben repensar cómo funcionaban las sociedades y el comercio en esta región en la Era Vikinga y la Edad Media Temprana, dijo Spangen.

Según Science Nordic, la granja está cerca de una fuerte corriente y habría sido un lugar natural para aquellos que viajan por mar. Es posible que la ruta de envío hubiera sido controlada por un jefe local con tarifas exigidas a los comerciantes, pero esto requeriría más investigación para probarlo.

Investigando las raíces de un nombre de lugar.

La historia de cómo Krokmyrdal decidió investigar la granja es tan interesante como el hallazgo en sí. Comenzó a buscar en el sitio con un detector de metales debido al nombre del sitio, Sandtorg. En el idioma noruego, el sufijo común -torg significa mercado o lugar de comercio, sin embargo, nunca se registró dicho lugar.

Su búsqueda inicial no condujo a ninguna parte, pero luego se dio cuenta de que la tierra habría estado bajo el agua durante la Era Vikinga. Después de moverse a un terreno más alto, rápidamente comenzó a encontrar artículos.

Krokmyrdal comenzó a usar un detector de metales como pasatiempo hace varios años. Una vez que comenzó a encontrar artículos, decidió estudiar arqueología y ahora tiene la intención de ingresar al comercio a tiempo completo.
