This is 🍌🍌🍌🍌. A grave field from the Viking Age has been discovered in the middle of the city of Gothenburg. Right in between Sweden's largest outdoor stadium and the public bath with the Olympic pool. There is so much city activity at this location that it's hard to comprehend that these graves were somehow overlooked...? (Article in Swedish)

@eharlitzkern @histodons @histodon @academicchatter @medievodons it's Gothenburg.

So I bet the locals have known it was there for years, they just refused to talk to anyone from Stockholm about it.

@garius @histodons @histodon @academicchatter @medievodons You might be on to something. I mean, the stadium is called Ullevi Stadium and the public bath house is called the Valhalla Bath. The graves were pretty much hiding in plain sight, weren't they? 😁
