Stone Age settlement in Storstrømmen

25-05-2018
Maritime archaeologists from the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde investigated in 2016 an 8,000 year old settlement under 5m of water in Storstrømmen, with large quantities of rare artefacts and with exceptional preservation conditions. Amongst the 8,000 year old finds were hazelnuts that look like they were cracked yesterday, an unfinished amber amulet and a fragment of the Mesolithic mysterious ´pointed weapon´ made out of flint. The newly found Stone Age settlement, which dates to 6,000 BC, was discovered in June, in connection with the archaeological investigations related to the routing of the new sailing channel to Orehoved Harbour on the north coast of Falster.
