Archaeologists believe they might have stumbled across a Viking boat along with some skeletal remains lying beneath a market square in Norway.

The discovery was made this week in the coastal city of Trondheim by researchers from the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU). While all of the structure’s wood had biodegraded over the centuries, they came across a rusted metal frame and broken nails, indicating that a 4-meter (13-foot) boat was buried here at some point during the Viking Age, over 1,000 years ago.
