Amateur archaeologist finds 'Bluetooth' treasure on German Baltic Sea island

The office said the two amateur archaeologists were asked to keep quiet about their discovery to give professionals time to plan the dig and were then invited to participate in the recovery.
On the East German island of rügen in the Baltic sea were found hundreds of silver coins, rings, pearls and bracelets.
Gormsson, better known by the nickname "Harald Bluetooth", was one of the last Viking rulers of Denmark.
Lead archaeologist Michael Schirren said, 'This trove is the biggest single discovery of Bluetooth coins in the southern Baltic Sea region and is therefore of great significance'.
Back in January, Luca Malaschnitschenko, a 13-year-old schoolboy, amateur archaeologist and metal detectorist, was exploring a field together with a companion, when he found a piece of metal.
Now, three months since the initial find, they have unearthed more than 4,000 square feet of land, discovering many more artifacts. The oldest coin, a Damascus dirham, dates to 714 CE, and the newest is a penny from 983 CE.
He is credited with unifying Denmark and introducing Christianity to the Nordic country. He ruled between 958 and 986 and came to be known as Bluetooth because of his dead, blue-ish looking tooth.
The company named the technology, developed to wirelessly unite computers with cellular devices, after him for his ability to unite ancient Scandinavia. He died a year later.
Because they stayed silent concerning their original sighting, the full treasure trove was retrieved.
"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. It is also dated to the reign of Harald Bluetooth.
The site of the treasure trove, Schaprode, is near where a 16-piece gold hoard dating from Bluetooth's reign was found in the 19th century.
