Scientists came to the conclusion that this burial may belong to the ancestor of the king of Denmark.
Experts from Denmark have found a large burial, according to the archaeologists this tomb could belong to the Viking chieftain Ulf.
Such burials have previously been found in different parts of Denmark, however, are not large.
Reportedly, the same grave already dug about 50 years. The information that scientists received in the course of the new excavations has considerably supplemented the historical probely. This time managed to find a fragment of a sword that belonged to a Viking chieftain. The sword was already found earlier, in the 50-ies. Fragment were able to determine that the sword belongs to the XI century. A specialist in the field of archaeology Bjarne Henning Nielsen contends that it is the tomb located in the territory of Valdemar I the Great, who was king of Denmark, 1157-1182.
Therefore, the scientists came to the conclusion that this burial may belong to the ancestor of the king of Denmark. Under assumptions of archaeologists, this may be the tomb of Ulf Jarl of Denmark, who lived in the XI century. He became famous for his robberies and bloody raids on the inhabitants of Spain. However, archaeologists claim that it is only one of the theories. Definitely to establish the identity of the person buried in the XI century is almost impossible.
