Swedish researchers discover ‘Allah’ written on ancient viking clothes

Ancient vikings had the words ‘Allah’ and ‘Ali’ woven with silk and silver thread  into their funeral clothes, according to a discovery made by Swedish researchers. The breakthrough was made by textile archaeologist Annika Larsson of Uppsala University while re-examining the remnants of burial costumes. The discovery is raising new questions about the influence of Islam in Scandinavia.

The clothing was initially found in 9th and 10th Century male and female boat and chamber graves. Annika asserts that perhaps these Vikings were just influenced by Islamic ideas. Previously it has also been established that there was contact between Vikings and Islamic civilization when Islamic coins were found in the Northern Hemisphere.
