In the Netherlands
Apart from the three hoars found at Westerklief, archaeology gave uw more finds which indicate the presence of vikings in this area around the 9th century.
The golden ring at Stroe
At Stroe a beautiful gold ring was found in a style generally used in Scandinavia in the early Middle Ages. It is, however, possible this ring is older than the Viking Age.

Westerklief had another tressure in store: a beautiful gold button, sculptured like the battle shield of the vikings, completely with umbo.
