FJERDINGREINFjerdingrein in Heidal in Sel, Oppland
|In 1810, a significant find of bracteates
and other coins from the first half of the 12th century was discovered
in Fjerdingrein in Heidal, Sel in Oppland. For a long time these coins
were considered to be Norwegian, but Danish and Swedish scholars have since
made strong arguments for suggesting that some of these coins were minted
in Jylland in Denmark in the 1130s and 1140s.
The find in Fjerdingrein includes the oldest examples of bracteates in Norway.
