The men, who were also buried with four dogs and hunting birds, are believed to have been in their 30s and 40s with frames ranging from 180-190 centimetres (5'11-6'3 feet).
Elaborately decorated gold-plated handles on their swords suggest they held high status, researchers say.
Now we know without doubt that we have found a fortress from the 10th century,” says archaeologist Nanna Holm, curator of the Danish Castle Centre.
Two carbon-14 dating results have removed all doubt regarding the authenticity of the Viking fortress.
When you have seen a sufficient number of cars, you can easily see that a Volkswagen Golf is more recent than a Beetle – and that the Golf looks like other cars of the same period. But this only allows us to arrange the artefacts in the correct time sequence relative to each other.
We already know that there’s a good chance that we’ll find conclusive evidence next year,” says Sindbæk.A pre-Viking age ship dating from 750 AD has Estonian researchers convinced they have found one of the first vessels ever to sail on the Baltic Sea.Researchers at a dig on Estonia's Saaremaa island confirmed the 17-metre-long (55.7-foot) ship used as a burial tomb for warriors had a keel, a device commonly used on sailing vessels to keep them upright in the water by counter-balancing the force of the wind on sails.The results of the two samples are almost identical: The fortress was built in the period between the year 900 and the beginning of the 11th century,” explains Marie Kanstrup, an employee at the AMS 14C Dating Centre at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University.Søren Sindbæk, a professor of medieval archaeology at Aarhus University, explains that archaeologists are still working to date the fortress more precisely. The carbon-14 method can’t provide that, but we are working on different methods that can help us date the fortress even more precisely.” “We can’t say whether or not it’s Harald Bluetooth’s fortress yet, but now that we’ve dated it to the 10th century, the trail is getting hotter.
