CSI: Valhalla - 1200 Year Old Viking Queen Exhumed to Solve Mystery!

The mystery of whether the other woman buried with her was a relative who died with her, or a servant killed and buried with her to do the cooking and cleaning in the afterlife.

Which is a possibility.

The remains were originally discovered in 1904, both bodies buried in a longboat. The boat (known as the Oseberg boat) is in a museum in Oslo, but the bones were reburied in 1948.

I'm not sure why they want to know this, unless it's a way to test their crazy-mad DNA testing skills. Other Viking graves have been found with two bodies, one of which was decapitated. Being a Viking servant was apparently a pretty lousy job.

There were spectators present.

Among those at the graveside was a man dressed as a Viking with a sword hanging from his belt. "This is an experience you get once in a lifetime," said Leszek Gardela, 23, a Polish student of archaeology

Leszek Gardela cares. And so should we all.
