Skeletons of related Viking-era men to reunite for exhibit

Two skeletons lies in a showcase at The National Museum of Denmark Wednesday, June 9, 2021 in Copenhagen. The skeletons of two related Viking-era men, one who died in central Denmark and the other who was killed in England during a massacre ordered by a king, are set to be reunited for an exhibition opening in Copenhagen this month. Scientists on both sides of the North Sea have established a genetic link between the Norsemen. DNA tests showed “that they are either half brothers or nephew and uncle,” University of Copenhagen geneticist Eske Willerslev said. (Ida Marie Odgaard/Ritzau Scanpix via AP)
