Description

DM 365 Thor
Historical Viking Replicas

In 793 A.D. the Danes, Norwegians, and Swedes began 295 years of seaborne exploration, war, piracy,commerce, and trade. This historic period is known as the Viking Age.

The Vikings sailed their longboats west to England, Ireland, Greenland, Iceland, Newfoundland, and Labrador. As mercenaries, looters, and later settlers and traders the Vikings traveled east to Russia, Turkey, and Constantinople. They sailed the coasts of Germany, France, Portugal, and into the Mediterranean Sea finding the riches of Morocco, Italy and the Middle East.

Our knowledge of Viking art relies heavily on the study of weapons, coins, and ornamental metalwork from archaeological sources throughout Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. This museum collection includes four metal replica artifacts.

English Viking Arrowhead. The original artifact is four inch medial riged leaf shaped point with side seam conical socket. It was found in York, England. This replica is made of lead free pewter. Crafted by dlp Studios for the Dunston Mint.

Eric Bloodaxe, sword type York.  The York silver penny of Eric Bloodaxe obverse displays ERIC REX in two lines with sword between; reverse with small crosslet (S1030)

Scandinavian Owl Pendant. The original bronze artifact was found near a settlement in Grobina, Latvia. The original is dated between the 9th and 11th century AD. The pendant depicts an owl face. This replica is cast in lead free pewter, has a loop on the back. Crafted by dlp Studios for the Dunston Mint.

Thor’s Hammer Amulet. Over 1000 of the Thor’s Hammer amulets have been found across Northern Europe. In 2014, a small hammer dating to the 10th century was found  on the Danish Island of Lolland. The pendant from Lolland is the first to have a runic inscription that directly attributes the Viking hammers to Thor i.e. the runic inscription orshammere (Thor’s Hammer Amulet).  Viking men and women often wore Thor’s hammer for protection. “It was the amulet’s protective power that counted, and often we see torshammere and Christian crosses appearing together, providing double protection”, said Peter Pentz, an archaeologist at the National Museum of Denmark. This replica of Thor’s hammer is cast in lead free pewter and has a loop on the handle. This replica artifact was crafted by Sven’s Viking Forge for the Dunston Mint.
