Along with the turtle brooches, the Danish Viking Exhibit at the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) there were a number of other jewellery pieces. You can see the turtle brooches here, but today I’ll be showing off some of the other pieces.
Bronze (with silver and niello) turtle brooch from Holbæk , Denmark
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!

Since along with Viking Age history, I’m also really interested in Finnish Iron Age/Viking period history as well, I was really excited to see the Baltic Jewelry display at the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM) during their display from Denmark in 2019.
