    Great fun to hear about the Sandbyborg incident.

    Being one of the archaeologists digging there I can confirm that you got many things right, and some seem to be filtered and twisted through media hearsay. The thing with the gold though, there was not a monetary economy in Migration period Scandinavia. It was a trade/agriculture/honor economy where the most important aspect is rulers handing out gold rings in exchange for loyalty of their warrior retinues. So gold did not lose its value, rather its value skyrocketed as it became harder to find. And Öland was only one of several centers for the mercenarie migrations, almost all larger island in the Baltic area were part of it.
    About curses … well, there are a few of them. There is the underfunding one of course. But there is no house 40 curse. House 40 is published in the 2013-2014 report.

    Goat teeth you say? I can neither confirm nor deny. Look over there, a Deep One!
