JORVIK Viking Centre - a must see attraction in York
Many lathe-turned wooden vessels such as bowls and cups – and the debris remaining from their manufacture – were found during the excavations at Coppergate. The cups were presumably used for drinking beer, the daily drink of the Viking Age; three show traces of having been decoratively painted. he range of sizes amongst the bowls is considerable, but most would have been table wares or used for food prep, or as serving dishes.

Viking women: Clothing: The Køstrup find
Køstrup smokkr, details of pleating One end of the smokkr fragment had been pleated with tiny pleats, 2-3 mm deep and 3 mm wide. The pleated part is currently approximately 7.6 cm long. The longest pleat is torn 4.3 cm from the top of the smokkr, so we don't know whether the fabric only was pleated near the chest, or if the pleats ran further down.
