Swedish cartographer who found a 2,500-year-old treasure
A Swedish cartographer has found Bronze Age jewelry believed to be 2,500 years old during a forest survey. There are fifty items in this priceless treasure, including necklaces, bracelets, and pins.
“At first I thought it was a lamp, but when I looked closely, I thought it was jewelry,” says cartographer Thomas Carlson.
Swedish archaeologists say the discovery of such a deposit is unusual.
In the old days, the tribes used to leave such items in the river banks or wet plains. This collection of old-fashioned jewelry was lying on the ground near a rock.
