Link to exhibition with similarlike golden beads on display
Look here for a picture of an even more elaborate type of golden bead from Gotland.
Intruiging to discover that the vikings weren't the first to make such beautiful beads, as can bee seen on this picture.
These beads are from a 2,600 year old Celtic Tomb !
Viking artefacts from the isle of Gotland have a distict architecture of itself, as also can bee seen on the boar heads brooches and so called 'box brooches'. Also the 'fish' necklace pendants are unique within the viking area.
A nice overview of what is to bee seen of the viking age on Gotland see:
also on this site a CD-R can be ordered with al kinds of pictures of beads excavated on the isle of Gotland..
On this picture a Gotlandic viking woman and how she could have worn this typical Gotlandic viking jewellry (see the boar head brooch, the fish pendants).
