Two years ago in May 2019 my mum and I took a trip to Edmonton to visit the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) specifically to see the touring Viking Exhibit from Denmark.
Today’s post is about some of the bone tools on display at the museum exhibit.
I found this display a little disjointed actually, and the only common element that I could figure is that all of the tools were made of bone. This display included:
- A composite single-sided bone comb with iron rivets (found at Otterup, Odense, Fyn, Denmark) (near the other bone comb display)
- “Horse and cow bones (Metapodials) used as skates” (found at Sørup, Zealand, Denmark)
- Bridle made of bone (from Vrå, Jutland, Denmark)
- “Handle made of bone, ornamented in Ringerike style, from Køge, Zealand, Denmark” c. 1000-1050 CE
