Linnaniemi, Hämeenlinna hoard necklace and other items from the hoard
Linnaniemi, Hämeenlinna hoard necklace in person
In my previous postI showed the display of silver necklaces from the museum castle at Hämeenlinna. Today I’ll go into further detail on the necklace they had on display – the Linnaniemi, Hämeenlinna hoard necklace.
(I realized only after the fact, that I had a lot of up-close photos, but not many whole-necklace photos… and unfortunately, the one above was the best one!)
Warning… this post has a LOT of detail, which might not be interesting to my regular readers!
In November I visited Hämeenlinna (the castle Häme in the town Hämeenlinna in Finland) and pretty much near-exclusively visited in order to see the necklace artefact that I based my A&S projecton when I made a necklace inspired by it.
Quotes are taken verbatim from the display – there are some grammatical errors, but I’m just pleased that there was an English explanation to begin with!
