Christian monks may have buried this treasure to dupe the Vikings
Tumblr media
More than 1,000 years ago, someone hid an opulent hoard containing more than 100 valuables underground in Scotland. When this buried treasure of silver brooches and bracelets, gold pins and rings, and an intricately decorated metal vessel was discovered in 2014, researchers initially thought that the Vikings had buried it.
They were wrong.
A new analysis of the hoard using X-rays, CT scans, microscopy and molecular analysis has revealed that although these valuables were buried during the Viking Age (A.D. 793-1066), it's likely that Christian monks or priests buried these riches, The Independent reported.
A metal detectorist discovered the trove — dubbed the Galloway Hoard — in the town of Balmaghie, which is in the Scottish council area of Dumfries and Galloway. In 2017, after a fundraising campaign, National Museums Scotland acquired the hoard, calling it "one of the most important U.K. archaeological finds of the century," in a news statement. Read more.

Nuns/Monks and Asexuality?
 I was thinking today about nuns and monks and prevalence of asexuality:
Were people more likely to choose to become nuns/monks if they were asexual (or aromantic)? Given they didn’t have that same need to have sex (or possibly were sex repulsed), maybe the idea of a life dedicated to prayer/giving up sex sounded really appealing? 
I don’t mean ALL nuns or ALL monks were asexual, but I’m wondering if there was perhaps a possibility of overrepresentation of asexual people throughout history choosing to remain celibate for life. 
I also feel like maybe there’s no way to ever know, but... hm..., right?
