"There, right in front of him it lies shining in the sand!
It is a large, nugget of amber, smoothed by sand and stones in the sea, and golden like the sun. In a few hours, the tide will once again cover the tiny beach, and take back the glowing treasure.
Hauge bends down, picking up the amber. He turns it slowly, watching it sparkle in the sunlight.
Certainly, this must be a gift from the Gods!
Three years after the attack on Styrbjorn’s village his brother, Sven, has been elected their new chieftain and the village has been rebuilt.
