Viking remains found in Ireland

Published on June 20th, 2011 | by Admin


Viking remains have been unearthed by construction in Rush, Ireland.

Skulls and bones were found near Rogerstown estuary. Local historians believe the remains date back to the 9th century. The former post of Lusk, close by, was used by the Vikings.

The National Monuments Service has been informed about the find by the on-site archaeologist and a full survey will begin next week. Until a more in-depth examination they will not know how many bodies are buried there.
