The unfinished amber amulet 

“Oh my God! Oh my God!” The shouts interrupt the daily updates from project leader, Morten Johansen. “It’s massive!” The shouts come across loud and clear, even though the telephone connection from the maritime archaeologists working platform off the coast in Storstrømmen isn’t the best in the world. “It’s a lump of amber the size of a chicken egg – it’s just come up – and it’s been worked, it has clear incisions and a drilled hole, I can’t talk more now – I’ll send photos!”
