Viking Knives CD

Email
One of the most common artifacts from the Viking Age is a knife. Almost every person in the Viking Age was in possession of a knife with him or her when they were buried (especially women). This means that our best information about knives is actually coming from grave finds. This CD-R deals with knives from Viking Age, mainly found on Gotland, and mainly coming from three different grave fields. The picture gallery is built around a number of authentic Viking knives with reasonably well preserved sheaths (Knife 1, 2 and 3). Besides these, there are some reconstruction drawings and photos (one is a detailed reconstruction of a knife and sheath from Gotland) of original knives, to get an impression of their sizes, shapes and decorations. A third part of the gallery deals with the form and shape of the iron knives themselves. Finally there is a section dealing with some pattern of bronze mountings from different sheaths.
