A single silver coin was first found in January by two amateur archaeologists, one of them a 13-year-old boy, in a field near the village of Schaprode.

Now, three months since the initial find, they have unearthed more than 4,000 square feet of land, discovering many more artifacts.

Archaeologists said about 100 of the silver coins are probably from the reign of Harald Gormsson, better known as "Harald Bluetooth", who lived in the 10th century and introduced Christianity to Denmark.

Gormsson was one of the last Viking kings of Denmark and became popular for bringing Christianity to the country. He's also credited with uniting swathes of modern-day Norway, Germany, Sweden and Denmark under his rule. These dates indicate that the treasure was likely buried in the late 980s, when Bluetooth lost a battle against his rebellious son, Sweyn Forkbeard. It is in his honor that the Bluetooth wireless communication technology has been named. He died a year later in A.D. 987.

The discoverers of the treasure belong to about 150 active volunteer in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, who in their spare time with metal detectors and Global Positioning System devices run over the fields in the northeast stripe. "We have here the rare case of a discovery that appears to corroborate historical sources", archaeologist Detlef Jantzen told the Guardian.
