Viking Lenses"Objects such as the one pictured above, and others, were discovered in viking villages dating to the 11th or 12th century. They were originally assumed to be ornaments. It was not until Karl-Heinz Wilms recognized the objects for what they were when he saw them in a Munich Museum. It is assumed that the vikings did not actually produce them but were made in Eastern Europe.

The image quality of these lenses have not been duplicated until the 1950's. It is possible that these ancient people possessed the technology to create these lenses for use in telescopes."[1/2]
