A pair of amateur archaeologists found a treasure trove on a Baltic island that is believed to have belonged to a Danish king from more than 1,000 years ago. René Schön and 13-year-old Luca Malaschnitschenko were rummaging around with metal detectors on the German island of Ruegen in the Baltic Sea when they happened upon the ancient treasure in January. But experts kept the find secret until last week. “This was the [biggest] discovery of my life,” Schön, a hobby archaeologist, told German news agency DPA. The find includes silver coins, rings, pearls, bracelets and a Thor’s hammer from the era of 10th century Danish King Harald Bluetooth.
