Incan skeleton found in Norway

<  Incan skeleton found in Norway

From Norway’s Aftenposten:

Archeologists in Sarpsborg have found one thousand year old skeletal remains that appear to be Incan.

The skeletal remains were found during conservations work at St. Nicolas church in Sarpsborg, a city 73 kilometers (45 miles) southeast of Oslo, NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) reports.

When archeologists were to move some rose bushes they made the surprising discovery of the remains of two older men and a baby.

“When we were about to take hold under the rose bush the skeletal remains slid out. It was quite surprising,” Mona Beate Buckholm, archeologist at the Borgarsyssel Museum, told NRK.

One of the skulls had characteristics that indicate he was an Inca, the South American people centered in Peru.

The archeologists now plan to try and find out what the man was doing in Østfold, and how he came there.

Kidnapped by Vikings? Incan vacation travel package to Scandinavia?

What a bizarre story.

If archaeology was actually a hot topic on the talk radio circuit, the wingers would spin the European takeover of the Americas as self defense. :)
