Inka in Norway 1000 years ago?!

For the first time ever Norwegian archaeologists have found a specific type of skeletons, dated to the year 1000 AD. One of the cranial parts recently found on the premises of Borgsyssel Museum in Sarpsborg, Norway have the indisputable characteristics of an Inka indian.





In restoring the old stone church of St. Nicolas in Sarpsborg the conservating archeologists were in for a big surprise as they excavated the roots of a rose-bush that grew under the foot of the old church’s tower. Suddenly the sacred bones of two men and a baby appeared.

One of the sculls have became an enigmatic object of discussion, since it  resembles the peculiar characteristics known to exist only among Inka indians!

“There is a bone in his neck that have not grown, which is a inherited characteristic that is well known among Inka Indians, but hardly anyone else”, says Mona Beate Buckholm, head archaeologist at The Bogarsyssel Museum in Sarpsborg, Norway. The skeletons are remains from two men, both between 50 and 70 years old, when they died - between 890-1015 AD.



The Norse king-sagas tells about long-standing relations over great distances, such as between Norway and east-coast America. Modern scholars, such as Thor Heyerdahl, have argued that Leif Eriksson was far from the first Norse sailor to cross the entire North Atlantic. In 1991 the Norwegian author Kare Prydz argued that the entire east-coast of North-America – down to Florida - was populated by Norse settlers that maintained a regular contact with their kings and cousins in Scandinavia until the end of Viking-time.



“We can hardly exclude the possibility that this man have been able to come here as a passenger on a ship. But, this is very special – as well as sensational”, says Buckholm.

Later this summer the Borgarsyssel Museum will continue excavating the fundaments of the tower from one of Norway’s oldest stonebuildings – the St. Nicolas Church in Sarpsborg, the old capitol of Viking-time Norway.

Hi Boreas
I have just now finished watching the History Channel doing a documentary on the Mayas - I guess last week was the Inca's and I missed it - but they were saying that their great cities were just left to ruin with no explanation.  I made a joke to my husband that they probably went to their winter quarters in Norway!

Seriously tho, this is a very interesting find.

 Cheesy Funny how a good joke can suddenly become a mere classic!   CoolRoll Eyes Cool

The Norwegians have an old saying about that kind of thing that goes "... troll i ord".
Literally that translates to; "... troll in word".

The word "troll" is - by now - quite well known in the English world, as well as in Norway - where they appeared in the old folklore. Here they are described to understand the mysteries of life in their own way, which in itself makes them a bit mysterious. In Swedish the word "trolla" (verb) and the Danish/Norwegian version "trylle" both means; "doing magic. 

Otherwise they are known as ancient giants that lived in hiding - inside the greatest mountains of the kingdom. And - as any Norwegian kid still gets to know - "There they watch over endless treasures..."
That is until the princess and her prince-in-hiding arrives, leaving a small little hole in the roof...

Yet its funny how the archetype of the troll are still remembered and memorized - as we keep the basic outline of those ol', big-nosed rollers - remembering an archetype that once played an essential role in the old culture of Scandinavia. Wink

Well, the Maya were'nt the best looking people in the world if their carvings are anything to go by, so maybe they are related to the Scandahuvian Trolls!
