Another quick post today from the Danish Viking Exhibit in 2019 at the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM)  – but one I was really happy to see

This brooch, shaped like a ship was found in Bornholm, Denmark, and is dated to 775-900 CE. The reason I was pleased to see it at the exhibit – is I have a reproduction of this brooch, albeit as a pendant.
