In May 2019 I visited Edmonton and the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) to see the touring Viking Exhibit from Denmark.
Yes…. 2019… and I’m only getting around to sharing them now. I must have gotten busy, and then – well, kind of forgot about the photos I guess.
I have a bunch of photos to share from this exhibit, which I’ll publish over the next few… weeks? Months? Depends on how long it takes and how much energy I have to edit photos and write.
The first photos I’ll share are the textile tools from the display.
- Spindle whorls of stone, amber, bronze, and then another one made of stone (L-R). These were from Vranum, Denmark which is close to Viborg.
- Textile smoothers of glass and stone assumed to have been used to smooth linen. These were from Zealand, Denmark.
- Sewing needles made of bone. These were from Zealand, Denmark
- Loom weights made of clay. These were from Jutland, Denmark
- Also included in this textile display was a bone comb which was found on the island of Föhr, Germany.
