Count this as a bit of a throwback post in itself – I actually made these ages ago… took the photos – but never ended up blogging about them!
Today’s post from the Royal Alberta Museum Viking display from Denmark is from a display with a number of trefoil brooches, penannular brooches, pins, rings, and keys. I’m not entirely sure what the common element is between all of these – other than things made of (mostly) bronze, worn as personal adornment.
One of the absolute show-stopper pieces at the Danish Viking Exhibit hosted at the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) was a gorgeous harness bow.
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. It’s taken me some time to get through the photos (and remember to post) but over the next while I’ll share some of the highlights from the exhibit, hopefully to help any other reenactors or costumers get inspired for their own future projects!
Today’s post is all about three Valkyrie figures that I alluded to in my previous post.
Today’s Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) exhibit items are all things that have ordinary uses, but are all decorated with different elements.
Like the Bone tools display, I found it difficult to categorize this display – and the only common element was that they seemed to be common items with decorative elements.
