“Dog Bites Man”

The BBC reports on a Viking ship ‘buried beneath pub’.

A 1,000-year-old Viking longship is thought to have been discovered under a pub car park on Merseyside.

The vessel is believed to lie beneath 6ft to 10ft (2m to 3m) of clay by the Railway Inn in Meols, Wirral, where Vikings are known to have settled.

Apparently the ship was originally found in 1938 when the current pub was rebuilt, but the contractor dumped fill over it so the job wouldn’t be delayed.

I think that we can all agree that a pub is a place where you would expect to find Vikings, that parking wasn’t a known Viking skill, but there is no way of knowing if they sang the Spam Song.
