    Excerpt from the above script: A Swedish university has discovered Arabic characters for “Allah” and “Ali” woven into Viking burial clothes. Researchers at Uppsala University describe the finding of the geometric Kufic characters in silver on woven bands of silk as “staggering”.

    The gold coin of Offa, king of Mercia, is a unique object because it imitates a gold dinar of the caliph al-Mansur. Although the Arabic inscription is not copied perfectly,the declaration that ‘There is no Deity but Allah, The One, Without Equal, and Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah,’ is clear.

    As the surface displayed no wear, and the original file marks can still be seen, the researchers concluded that the ring probably passed from an Arab silversmith to the woman in the grave with very few owners in between. They compared its condition favorably with that of imported coins (mostly from Afghanistan)

    The dead chieftain was put in a temporary grave, which was covered for ten days until they had sewn new clothes for him. One of his thrall women volunteered to join him in the afterlife and she was guarded day and night, being given a great amount of intoxicating drinks while she sang happily. When the time had arrived for cremation,

    I just looked at the Link and it does not say How Old the Find is. Does it Date after the 13th Century after the Founding of Islam or is it Older?

    I found this Link:
    http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2...ic-sweden-spd/

    "Carolyn Priest-Dorman, who wrote a critical blog post. The garments show some signs of reconstruction, wrote Priest-Dorman, including a "selvedge," or finished hem.

    Stephennie Mulder, a professor of Islamic Art and Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin, also remains skeptical. While Mulder says she cannot fully assess Larsson's findings until she sees her entire publication, it would take a lot to convince her that the garments indeed included Kufic script reading "Allah."
