It was hard to keep up watching this video due to most of it being in Norwegian, however, some English was used. The ceremony is mostly over now, they have opened the package, and have looked through/shared some of the items. They said that they will be putting it on display for the public to view for the weekend. My guess is they plan to delve much further into examination next week. There were scarves/flags [not really sure] in the package. One of them was white/gold and said ''Fra Kongen'' on it, which translates to ''From the King''. There were many letters, a couple newspapers [One from August 1, 1919], financial documents, a photograph of a memorial, telegrams, and a few notebooks/journals. Some of the letters were from the USA. The majority seemed to be about [and again, don't take my word for it b/c it was mostly in Norwegian] a memorial that was erected during or around a tricentennial celebration for the Battle Of Krigen.
What I found interesting is that the woman said two or three times that this could be of interest to the USA. The war was fought between Norway and Scotland before the USA even existed.
i see..thnx for the review... too boring for me the result...but was expected with such kind of hype around it...
I'm an English/History student, so all I needed to hear was '100 year old...' and I was hooked. I just wish more of it would of been in English.
so what did they find in the package?!!!! oooooooooo so fun fun!!!
A bunch of documents and some flags/scarves. See my other comment, I describe it a little further.
lol really? oh... well i wonder what the documents are about... ;) ;)... im going to get my bf to translate ;)
yes im gonna check myself actually.
it's probably just cocaine... Or Hitler's baby pictures...
hitler wasnt from norway. So the documents are not about hitler.
hitler was born in austria and lived in germany, ;)
