    Swedish Museum Accelerates Their Cultural Collapse By Turning Viking Artifacts Into Scrap Metal







    Swedish Museum Accelerates Their Cultural Collapse By Turning Viking Artifacts Into Scrap Metal
    Jean-Batave Poqueliche August 16, 2017


    Following the revelations of one of its angry archaeologists, it emerges that the curators of Stockholms Länsmuseum have been ordering the systematic destruction of newly found artifacts from the Iron Age and the Viking period under the guise that it would be too burdensome to process.

    Coins, arrow heads, ritual amulets, weapons, jewellery and weights that were kept in the past are now directly dumped into metal recycling bins upon discovery instead of being treasured and displayed.
    The museum’s version

    Following a recent surge in excavations aimed at construction that are occurring all over Sweden, the museum excavators are instructed to recycle unearthed iron elements into scrap metal following the pretext that “it would take too much resources to process, identify and store them.” The findings are usually quickly disposed of in order to make way for construction machines and building workers.

    This was kept secret until this week’s declarations by Johan Runer, archaeologist at the said museum. He tried to raise the alarm before but only met indifference from the Liberal Swedish Media. According to Runer, this has been going on since at least 2016 as he recalls the example of an entire human settlement from the Bronze and Iron Age that discretely got levelled to allow road works for Sweden’s E6 motorway to progress. We do not know so far if this practice only incriminates this museum or is part of a greater scale.

    Runer explains that the archaeologists cannot themselves auction the findings to the private sector as it would encourage crooks and robbers to then resell the treasure.

    The mask slips and reveals the true motive

    The money argument for a national museum implanted in one of the most prosperous countries on Earth (for now, before the “New Swedes” do what they do best) does not make sense. There is no shortage of funds in Sweden to host more refugees and promote multiculturalism in every media, but the money seems to vanish when it’s time to preserve European common heritage.

    The tragic aspect of this situation is that those construction works that unearth the artifacts destined to be destroyed are probably the new buildings needed to house the freshly arrived migrants that the Swedish government is so eager to welcome. Talk about full circle.

    Archaeological artifacts made of iron are altered by time and roughened by the terrain. No one can really judge of their quality and uniqueness until they are being processed and restored. In this particular case, no chance is taken and anything made of metal that is not well conserved is ditched.

    It was even kept relatively secret until one researcher who could not take it anymore had to tell the world. Why do they not invite other museums around the world to collect and protect their artifacts in their name if money is an issue? I know at least ten museums around me that would stop everything they are doing right now to plan a trip and bring back the artifacts to add them to their collection.

    Why don’t they store them in labelled wooden boxes as it was done for hundred of years? If not, let them ask for voluntary work to take care of the findings or let it be given to the native people that are interested in this culture. Even if used as door stops or cutlery, they’ll take better care of it than any Swedish liberal government.

    Not sure if this is fake news or not, but yeah, they would bring a better price at market than they would as scrap.

    I agree of course and would probably buy some myself; it says in the article why not:
    Runer explains that the archaeologists cannot themselves auction the findings to the private sector as it would encourage crooks and robbers to then resell the treasure.
    They don't want to create a market for such items; as to keep from encouraging others from making the money instead of the state.

    Have you ever tried buying one? they are very affordable as it is. Luckily for you, there is a big supply of viking artifacts recovered over the years. You can get them as low as $5 for the lower quality ones. I think if more people bought even the low quality ones, this will cause them to save as many artifacts as possible. This is me assuming the main gist of the article is true.

    I think with artifacts like the viking ones where we have loads of well preserved ones and low quality ones, they would most likely toss some very low quality ones out if they are not moving products and if they are running out of storage. This people spend millions digging this stuff out of the ground, I refuse to believe that these same people will maliciously throw good items out for no good reason.

    Ya, I was talking about the people allegedly destroying them. As in the museums. If the state is going to claim ownership and responsibility for artifacts then preserve them or give others the chance to do so at a profit.

    I'm hoping Phil is right and the story is not entirely accurate but this really wouldn't surprise me.

    I'm sure there is already a black market, and the fakery that comes with it, and laws against it. If the museum were to authenticate, and sell, this would create a legal avenue for individuals to own a piece of history. Understand, I'm not advocating in support of a government monopoly vs. a free market, etc. etc. I'm just merely pointing out that the National museums are missing out on a profit generating avenue that could fund further studies.

    Hard to verify this story. It appears that the OP story was based upon this article in Swedish:

    I found a $2.50 viking belt buckle on a third party seller. How much do you think the museum got from the sale? I think the OP pics has mislead people into thinking that the items being tossed(if true) are items the black market would be interested in. I think the idea of reducing black market sellers is mainly for them to control the supply and limit fraud(there is a lot of fraud in the artifact market). I can see how they would see no value in collecting and storing the fifty one thousand damaged spoon handle when they have 99% of their supply on the shelves or in storage with no interested buyer or collector.

    But hopefully this news will renew interest in viking era items and they might reconsider throwing anything out.

    “Authenticating” low quality pieces would probably not be worth the time spent to do it.

    I would be less inclined to believe it if they had a more (ahem) "authentic" Minister of Culture.

    The amulet looks very rusted like its going to disintegrate if you mishandle it. My guess is that it needs some restoration or storage in a climate controlled room. Regardless, it must suck to know that they toss anything out from your history
