Although the Vikings have a popular reputation as being raiders, they were also farmers, traders and explorers, and the craftsmanship seen in this jewelry demonstrates their artistic skills.

The Vikings are fascinating, or I think so. The craftsmanship in the old jewelery pieces lives up to the Viking reputation for being skilled in metal works.

They were geniuses with all varieties of metal. The same hands that forged the Viking long swords and great axes forged these gorgeous pieces.

Fascinating and intriguing. I wonder who wore these and what their lives were like so long ago. I know I would not want their dental plan!
