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.
