Remains of Viking Church Found

Something for the history buffs.

Swedish archaeologists have found the remains of stave a church in Sweden from the days of the hale and hearty Vikings.

What's also interesting is that apparently a woman was buried here (date back to the 11th Century).

“Not just anyone was buried in the middle of a church; it hints that the person was someone very special. In modern times it was fairly common for priests to end up in a church. But commoners were kept outside the church,” said Annuswer [spokesperson for Swedish National Heritage Board (RiksantikvarieƤmbetet) ].
