This post is all about the show-stoppers at the Vikings in BC exhibit. (Click the Vikings in BC tag to see more posts from this exhibit.)
Today’s post is a short one – about amulets on display at the Vikings in BC exhibit.
The round pendant above (and below, seen from the side) is made of bronze, and is decorated with a “mythological animal-shaped figure”. This amulet was from a grave find in Helvigsdal, Uppland.
Today I just have a short post with photos from the Vikings in BC exhibit.
This exhibit had a series of cascading “Rolo” style chains hanging from chain hangers. The display also had two neck rings.
In my last post you might have noticed a key in among the brooches as part of a larger display. While there are brooches in this post, this really is all about the keys from the Vikings in BC display, which came to Victoria, BC from Sweden. I visited the exhibit in summer 2014, but there have been so many things to blog about, that I still haven’t been able to post everything!
This will be another image-heavy post, so watch-out mobile users!
The key above seems to have been suspended using loop-in-loop chain.
Today I have even more pictures for you from the Vikings in BC exhibit, focused on brooches from a few different displays.
This is another image-heavy post, so I’m separating brooch-related posts into a few posts.
