I never find anything this good when I go digging!

Kids find 1000 year old jewelry

TROMSO, Norway (UPI) -- A simple family garden in Norway will undergo a major excavation after two kids found ancient Viking artifacts while just playing around a tree.

Aftenposten reports two 5-year-olds from Tromso were digging around the tree`s root when they found a large circular pendant and a silver bead.

Since then, archeologists have discovered more artifacts from what they suspect are Viking graves from around the year 900.

Associate Professor Inger Storli of the Tromso Museum said he had never seen anything like it before.

The garden will now be turned into a major archeologist site to search for more artifacts.
