The Hammer of Thor

- 1388 days ago -
A small hammer dating to the 10th century was found recently on the Danish Island of Lolland. Over 1000 of these amulets have been found across Northern Europe but the pendant from Lolland is the only one with a runic inscription.

Thanks Marty! Nice to listen to Danish again. By the way, the video didn't reveal more than the article (for those of you who don't understand Danish). I actually have one of those amulets (modern version) and wear it quite often.

Thor's hammer, being for war and not for carpentry, would be symmetrical. I wonder why those who questioned it on that ground did so? It goes without saying they were not fighters LOL.
