Recently, archeologists of Leiden University made an excavation in Oegstgeest, where they found a unique silver bowl from the first half of the seventh century as well as imported pottery and winebarrels. Thijs Porck, lecturer in Old English language and culture at Leiden University, places the Oegstgeest finds in a literary-historical context. "It wouldn't surprise me if the Leiden archaeologists soon encountered a pair of oversized bones."
