In March 2017, the once quiet town of Birkelse, Denmark became a hot spot for media crews and forensic specialists. A 14-year-old Danish boy made quite the discovery in his family’s farm and it would eventually attract international media coverage. No one could have imagined that a teenage boy would be able to unearth such an important piece of history.
