Oh man, how I wish I could get back out into the field....

Anyway, this is an awesome find.  Nordic societies tended to cremate their dead.  To have found skeletons in that area is pretty rare.  How I wish I was the bioarchaeologist on site :(

Given the lack of looting, almost has to be a plague like smallpox that wiped out the isalnd too fast for folks even to deal with the dead doesn't it?   and the rest of the Viking word got the word to stay the fark away?

Did you watch the video?  It sounded like the fort was raided.  The archaeologist described how the skeletons were found and it doesn't sound like the residents were sick.   It could be that the local residents were terrified of 'evil spirits' lingering around the site, and then over time it was forgotten.

I'm betting when they were raided they shoved all their valuables up their asses.  Once they were all dead and they decomposed... Ta-Dah!  Rich assholes.

And didn't take any trophies with him when he left. I expect a large arm to be found nearby.

Undead archaeologist!

I'll bet she was at the original event and is only now helping to "discover" it.

Sometimes I feel surprise at the fact scandinavian culture seems so laid back and yet produces their own flavor of Black Metal. Then I imagine spending months without sun and it all makes sense.

I've been in the field for the past three years, in the desert...

We have offices all over California...

I really don't want to give any details on Fark, but we are always looking for people, if you don't mind monitoring there is plenty of work.

No Sand Giants in Everfrost Peaks.

Side note: anyone see if EverQuest next is going to be more like original EQ or EQ2? I'm hoping for the former.
