Yes, but how many of them will be known in the year 3014? :o
The process of discovering the newly found fortress was pretty interesting. First, it began as a hunch that a fortress should have been built in the area:
We suspected that one fortress was ‘missing’ on the island of Zealand. The location at Vallø was quite the right setting in the landscape: in a place where the old main roads met and reached out to Køge river valley, which in the Viking Age was a navigable fjord and one of Zealand’s best natural harbours. From there we worked our way forward step by step. ”
By measuring small variation in the earth’s magnetism we can identify certain archaeological features without destroying anything. In this way we achieved an amazingly detailed ‘ghost image’ of the fortress in a few days. From this survey we knew exactly where we had to put in excavation trenches to get as much information as possible about the mysterious fortress. ”
So far, little has been excavated and radiocarbon dating has not be completed. There is much to be learned about the role and significance of this fortress, which may shed light on the political situation which existed at the time.
