Amulets and Pendants
In times of the Vikings, amulets and pendants were very popular. Probably the wearers hoped that forces, which symbolized the amulets, passed on to them and their own lives. Symbols and topics of mythology were taken up for it and illustrated in small amulets. Until today amulets have a great meaning for many people.
Numerous grave finds prove that this was also the case in the Viking age. One of the most outstanding examples is the hammer of Thor, which many people wore on their bodies at that time in the form of an amulet.
