The accumulated silver coins may have been part of a historic ransom to save Paris

massive Silver Coins coined in the Carolingian Empire about 1,200 years ago were excavated in northeastern Poland and may have been part of a historic ransom to save Paris from the Viking invasion.

This is the first time I have found so many Carolingian coins in Poland. Only three such coins have been found in the country so far, in a unique style with a Latin inscription and a central cross.
