The Viking Archaeology Blog is concerned with news reports featuring Viking period archaeology. It was primarily constructed as a source for the University of Oxford Online Course in Viking Archaeology: Vikings: Raiders, Traders and Settlers. For news reports for general European archaeology, go to The Archaeology of Europe News Blog.
The British Museum has asked the public to help identify and recover ancient artefacts that have gone missing from its collection.
Last month a member of staff was sacked and police launched an investigation after around 2,000 treasures were reported "missing, stolen or damaged" over a "significant" period of time.
The museum has now said most are Greek and Roman gems and jewellery, and shared pictures of similar items.
Sixty objects have been returned.
In a statement, the museum added that 300 more had been "identified and [are] due to be returned imminently".
