Viking key

Key, bronze, Viking - decorated in a circle and line pattern with a loop for suspension at the head of the bow.

Mums!

Viking steel, bone and antler. These are some of the wepons the Vikings used.

Viking age women's

viking women's jewellery - here are brooches called 'tortoise' brooches because of their shape.

Viking reenactment: a linen undergarment, a brown woolen dress with long sleeves, and an apron dress with silk decorations and metal posaments. Also a blue coat, a checkered shawl and a pair of needle bound mittens (dyed with yellow leek). On my head I'm wearing a silk veil, fastened to a linen cap with two needles. Everything is hand sewn with waxed linen thread. The jewelry is mainly Birka (as the rest of the outfit), but the large box brooch in front is based on a find from Gotland.

Och här kan vi se att norska kvinnor är ganska spinkiga och danska korta och tjocka, eller?

Bone Viking Age needlecase from Öland. Note the attached bronze chain with its own ring for fastening to a brooch or other holding device. In the Historiska Museet, Sweden.

Viking Age Needle case of long bone which is ornamented with in different directions dashed zones, hanger and chain of bronze.

Note the interesting decorated veil, rather more Russian than Scandinavian in style, though at least one Birka grave contained a skull with a metal brocaded tablet-woven band around it.

I like this headdress. It's not the "typical" Coppergate/Dublin cap that most Norse reenactor women around here have taken to wearing. Original photo posted to a Swedish costuming site by Audhumbla Crafts in Visby.
