OseBerg Ship Queen

The OseBerg Ship is once again in the news. Was the queen buried in the ship buried with a slave girl or daughter? That mystery will soon be solved.

Now, how could we pass up news like that? After all, we are the OSE clan. And even if we are not related to said Queen of said Ship....we DO bear the same name, and that must account for something, right?

I grew up in Echo, Minnesota as Kari Ose and have been known to revert back to my original name while under great pressure during interrogation at high security country's airports or train terminals. I won't go into details right here and now....

Anyway, for 22 years of my life I gladly bore the name "Ose" which my ancestors took for themselves after moving to Ose, Norway which means "mouth of the river" and indeed it is the mouth of the river and beginning of the fjord between Orsta and Volda in Western Norway. Beautiful place, by the way! How could Grandpa Knute Ose ever leave?

Viking Queen Exhumed to Solve Mystery

SLAGEN, Norway
Archaeologists exhumed the body of a Viking queen on Monday, hoping to solve a riddle about whether a woman buried with her 1,200 years ago was a servant killed to be a companion into the afterlife.

As a less gruesome alternative, the two women in the grass-covered ship mound in south Norway might be a royal mother and daughter who died of the same disease and were buried together in 834.

"We will do DNA tests to try to find out. I don't know of any Viking skeletons that have been analyzed as we plan to do," Egil Mikkelsen, director of Oslo's Museum of Cultural History, told Reuters at the graveside.
