Coin discovery thrills archaeologists


Recommended Posts

Archaeologists monitoring some digging by the City of Oslo's waterworks department made a sensational discovery this week. The discovery was made while archaeologists were monitoring replacement of new waterlines in the oldest part of Oslo.


The archaeologists have been following excavations done by city workers who are replacing underground water pipes in the oldest part of Oslo, called Gamlebyen.


That's the neighbourhood east of today's downtown area where Oslo’s first known settlements were established more than a thousand years ago. It's also where there are ruins of churches and homes from the Middle Ages.
