HOME - an introduction to this website with here a link to the weekly BLOG about Viking Age artefacts. Apart for myself, I invite everyone to write a guest blog about his or her Viking Age item wich intruigs them and want to tell about ! You are always welcome to do so !
ABOUT - something about myself, my mission and goal with this website and useful links to books about the Viking Age and musea displaying artefacts from this era.
THE VIKING ARTEFACTS - The virtual museum of my collection of Viking Age artefacts, with detailled indepth information on the artefact involved. As I think descriptions accompanying artefacts in musea are little exposed, I hope it is to true value for the layman as well for the scholar..
TRAVELLING WITH VIKINGS - A brief introduction to the journeys I have made to countries with Viking Age heritage and spots to visit there (musea, sites etc.). Being 'under construction' I will rearrange things here a bit and add reports of my journeys to Norway, the Orkney Isles, Iceland and the north of Germany (Haithabu). This summer I intend to travel to Cumbria in England..
DENMARK - As it says, a report of my journey to Denmark..
SHOP - My (modest) shop with one or two Viking Age artefacts you can buy actually !
THE VIKING ARTEFACTS ON TOUR - a resume of the exhibition in Roermond, Holland where currently a part of my collection is on display. I would feel happy to tell more about it to you in personal and guide you around when you are in the neighbourhood.
