Viking Wreckage Found at Birka?

Maritime archaeologists have found what may be the first Viking ship, or at least some wreckage, in the Lake Mälaren area. A T-sectioned multi-meter timber looking a lot like a keel lies half-buried in the culture layer on the lakefloor just off the proto-town of Birka on Björkö.

Thanks to Hans of Du är vad du läser for the heads-up.

Update 17 November: More details here.
