|Amateur divers find 1,000-year old Viking ship|
|STOCKHOLM, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Amateur divers have discovered a 1,000-year-old Viking ship at the bottom of a sea inlet in Harnosand in northern Sweden, the Angermanland daily newspaper reported on Monday. |
As well as the 30-metre (100 feet) longboat, two other wrecks were discovered in the inlet, which is known to have been used by Vikings venturing out into the Baltic Sea.
"We were able to date the boat from the breadth of the boat's span," marine archaeologist Seth Jansson told the newspaper. "This inlet is a treasure trove for us archaeologists," he said.
