In early September of this year, a major archaeological find was made in Estonia. On the territory of the island of Saaremaa Yegor Klimov, part of a group of searchers led by archaeologist Marika Mägi, discovered a rare bracelet age 1700 years. The massive object is made of gold and weighs 175 g. This artifact has become a very successful catch, since even old buttons and coins are infrequent objects encountered by Amateur archaeologists.

Along with the bracelet were dug brooches, some of which are silver, straps with silver plates and other items made of gilded silver. Probably, the bracelet belonged to a representative of the Scandinavian nobility of those ancient times when it was made. The object is a sample of fine workmanship, and in fact the more complex the design, the more wealthy people could afford such decoration.
