Archaeologists from Aarhus University in Denmark and The Danish Castle Centre have made a sensational discovery south of Copenhagen: A massive Viking fortress built with heavy timbers and earthen embankments. The Viking fortress is over 1000 years old, and it’s the first to be discovered in over 60 years. The fortress is perfectly circular and is similar to the famous “Trelleborg” fortresses built by King Harald Bluetooth around the year 980, which have been nominated for inclusion in UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites.
