In the late 1800s, Swedish archaeologist Hjalmar Stolpe discovered the remains of a Viking military leader. Stolpe found the body buried in military fashion with a sword, an axe, a spear, armor-piercing arrows, a battle knife, shields, and two horses. For this reason, Stolpe assumed the warrior was a man. Two hundred years later, Anna Kjellström, an osteologist at Stockholm University, conducted a study of her own.
The American Journal of Physical Anthropology performed a DNA test that confirmed Kjellström was right. The warrior was a woman.
DNA evidence from that long ago seems quite inconclusive wouldn't you say?— Leo Graham (@LeMemeSwiper57) September 11, 2017
So, DNA determines your gender? That can't be right.— Jason Raimondo (@JasonRaimondo1) September 11, 2017
Am not surprised, women have always been the real MVP's... imo civilization itself was built upon women's back!— michael munemo (@ts8802) September 11, 2017
That's what they'd say right before they stuck you with a sword: "I've got your myth right HERE, pal!"— Baka Karasu 馬鹿 八咫烏 (@BakaKarasu) September 11, 2017
They did the same kind of study in England a few years back on viking graves and pretty much got the same results. So cool— Sidsel Pedersen (@macthekat82) September 9, 2017
