SWEDISH MUSEUM...TURNING VIKING ARTIFACTS INTO SCRAP METAL

Post OsricPearl on Thu 17 Aug - 21:15

I know a lot of people think this site is iffy, so if anyone can find any collaborating evidence from Swedish media, that would be great. This made my blood boil.

http://www.returnofkings.com/128167/swedish-museum-accelerates-their-cultural-collapse-by-turning-viking-artifacts-into-scrap-metal

Following the revelations of one of its angry archaeologists, it emerges that the curators of Stockholms Länsmuseum have been ordering the systematic destruction of newly found artifacts from the Iron Age and the Viking period under the guise that it would be too burdensome to process.

Coins, arrow heads, ritual amulets, weapons, jewellery and weights that were kept in the past are now directly dumped into metal recycling bins upon discovery instead of being treasured and displayed.

The museum’s version
Following a recent surge in excavations aimed at construction that are occurring all over Sweden, the museum excavators are instructed to recycle unearthed iron elements into scrap metal following the pretext that “it would take too much resources to process, identify and store them.” The findings are usually quickly disposed of in order to make way for construction machines and building workers.

This was kept secret until this week’s declarations by Johan Runer, archaeologist at the said museum. He tried to raise the alarm before but only met indifference from the Liberal Swedish Media. According to Runer, this has been going on since at least 2016 as he recalls the example of an entire human settlement from the Bronze and Iron Age that discretely got levelled to allow road works for Sweden’s E6 motorway to progress. We do not know so far if this practice only incriminates this museum or is part of a greater scale.


How I picture the LänsMuseum’s board
Runer explains that the archaeologists cannot themselves auction the findings to the private sector as it would encourage crooks and robbers to then resell the treasure.

This is just terrible. Going after priceless findings like that! Bad Mood

It's a brand new story so I'll check for more reports next week. There is such an archaeologist as Johan Runer though. Pretty outrageous if true.

Its a pity.... turning ancestral/cultural artifacts integral to a country's history into a tasteless, modernized commodity is as low as it comes. Such disrespect is only reinforced by ignorant individuals who try to put a price on everything. Its a shame how political correctness and double standards can regress/devolve people into illogical savages.

Its times like this when you wish you could live in a time before modernity; where people lived within their means and were more tribal. Where wisdom and good values triumphed over petty ignorance and greed. Nevertheless, there will be times in life where you can't put a "price tag" on everything.

But what is the reason they are doing this? (if they are).

To erase their ancestral history and thus become more suitable for their beloved multicultural society?

If this's the reason.... it's despicable besides of moral and intellectually dishonest.

I hope one day someone writes a book with all the vile acts that cultural marxists have done in support of their cause.

Maybe they already have so much of this stuff that they don't need anymore for their museums. But in that case, I'm sure private collectors the world over would be interested in buying it.

Right, they could sell it to the americans for example as they would be delighted to buy this kind of ancient stuff.

But I don't think scandinavians, or anyone, has so much stuff of bronze/iron ages that they don't know what the hell do with it.

^ That does seem unlikely.
