Take to the air with six aeroplanes that have changed the face of military flying forever. When the Soviet-built MiG-15 first screamed over the battlegrounds of the Korean War, America was horrified at what it could do. Nimble, jet-powered, and capable of diving at supersonic speed, it outperforms any machine in the sky. Meanwhile, the F-22 Raptor, through a combination of delays, cost-overruns and a changing combat landscape, never really took off, either literally or metaphorically. And the Dassault Rafale is an aircraft capable of performing both air-to-air and air-to-ground strikes as well as interceptions simultaneously. With 14 hardpoints suitable for carrying nine tons of weaponry and ordnance such as a 30mm cannon, and laser-guided bombs, this aircraft certainly packs a punch.

In November 2012, in central Denmark in a small town called Fregerslev, Merethe Schifter Bagge and her team were sent out to do a routine archaeological survey. However, this survey turned out to be anything but routine. They discovered something shiny buried in the soil; one of hundreds of metal pieces from a thousand-year-old horse's bridle. This bridle was part of one of the largest burials ever found in Denmark and it dates to the beginning of the end of the Viking Age. The bridle was made of priceless metals that must have been imported into Denmark. The placement of the bridle in the grave suggests that this was a rider burial; a type of pagan burial where a wealthy Viking would have been buried with a sacrificed horse. This was the grave of a very important Viking who lived around 950 AD. The most bizarre aspect of this burial is that it doesn't contain a body.
