schaprode - In a field on the Baltic island of Rügen in northern Germany, archaeologists have discovered a valuable silver treasure from the end of the tenth century. The treasure consists of necklaces, bracelets, beads, brooches, a hammer from Thor, ring jewels and about five to six hundred coins partially chopped.

About one hundred of these coins can be assigned to the reign of the legendary Danish king Harald Blauwtand (910-987). Archaeologists call it the largest single find of Blauwtand coins in the southern Baltic region.

Already in 1872 and 1874 the famous gold jewelry of Hiddensee was discovered a few kilometers away on the island of Hiddensee. Blue tooth, born as a Viking, is considered the founder of the Danish Empire, who founded the country, introduced Christianity and carried out reforms.

Bluetooth has been named after this king.
