Opening of a 950 year old tomb in Venosa, Italy

The famous Hauteville family¬†was perhaps the most successful mercenary family in history. In Italy they are known as the Altavilla family. In January 2018 we opened a tomb in a monastery in Venosa in an attempt to find out more about this family’s Viking origins. After seven years of preparations this was a very exciting and good day.
