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.
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.
Near the entrance to the Viking display at the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) there was a really small display – featuring a single silver coin. It was just one of many exhibits that included coins used as personal embellishment.
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
