The History Museum in Norway

The docent at the history Museum of Oslo, was taking a group around showing them the various artefacts, and explaining their history.
Pointing to an old Norse ship on display, he said, “This ship sailed around the known world many times and has been refinished to it’s original splendor. It is 5,007 years old.”
One lady in the group asked, “How can you determine it’s age so accurately?”
“Well,” said the docent, “When I came to work here 7 years ago, they told me it was 5,000 years old.”
