Although this doesn’t directly relate to some of the Viking costume elements I wanted to show off on this blog, I thought that these photos from a silver horde would be interesting to some of my readers. Some of the silver is “hack silver” and is broken jewelry, etc. Silver coins might also be hung from treasure necklaces.
The horde display including scales, weights, coins, and other silver.
A different view of the silver coins.
The description in the Iceland National Museum states that the coins are English, and were buried shortly after 1000 CE.
Other elements of the silver horde have been dated to the 10th Century.
