New Viking Ring Fortress in Denmark...

The newly excavated Viking ring fortress near Køge on the island of Zealand.
It was actually found long ago but was not excavated extensively, so nobody knew that this was from the Viking Age. Denmark now officially has 5 Viking ring fortresses that were all built around 980AD.
