In Germany found a unique treasure of the Danish king

They are associated with the era of the Danish king Harald Gormsen, reports The Associated Press.

Archaeologists have made a valuable find on the Baltic Sea island of Rügen.

Mr Schoen said he and 13-year-old Luca Malaschnitschenko were using metal detectors on the field near Schaprode when Luca found a little piece that he initially thought was only aluminium garbage. Experts kept the find secret until a team dug up 400sq metres of land at the weekend.

Discovered by a 13-year-old boy and his teacher, the find consists of necklaces, pearls, brooches, bracelets, rings and up to 600 silver coins - and some of the treasure has been linked to a famous king who lived over 1,000 years ago.

"This was the [biggest] discovery of my life", Schön, a hobby archaeologist, told German news agency DPA.

Among the discoveries were several silver coins bearing images of a Christian cross, believed by historians to be among Denmark's first independent coins.

Federation Internationale de Football Association to begin Morocco World Cup inspection

He is believed to have converted to Christianity some time around 960, a decision that historians link to a decline in pagan traditions throughout the kingdom.

Many think the treasure may have been buried sometime around the late 980s when Bluetooth had to flee to Pomerania - a region including parts of modern northeast Germany and western Poland - due to his son Sven Gabelbart, who rebelled against him and took over the throne. He ruled between 958 and 986 and came to be known as Bluetooth because of his dead, blue-ish looking tooth.

It inspired the name of Bluetooth technology invented by Swedish telecom company Ericsson.

"We have here a rare case, when a discovery seems to be related to historical sources", says the chief archaeologist of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Detlef Jantzen.

A coin unearthed at the dig. The symbol of Bluetooth is also a mixture of two letters of runic alphabets representing the initials of King Harald.
