Viking Gold Amulet Found

A gold amulet bearing the face of Viking god Odin has been discovered on the Danish Island of Lolland. It could be as old as 1,500-years-old, and may have been offered as a sacrificial present to the deities sometime around 536AD.

The find is rare. Only about 1,000 amulets are known.
