The more than 1000 year old silver treasure of Schaprode has been brought to the State Office for Culture and Monument Preservation
in Schwerin. In total, the treasure, weighing about 1.7 kilograms, consists of 1920 individual pieces, as state archaeologist Detlef Jantzen said on Thursday. Among them are about 250 Danish and 600 Islamic coins and coin fragments as well as about 450 imperial coins. In addition, jewellery and fragments of rings, brooches, necklaces and bangles were inventoried.
The treasure will now be re-evaluated to determine the need for restoration and is then available for scientific processing.
