Of Vikings and Royalty

I’m in Norway, Viking country. So, time to get a Viking fix. Seeing there aren’t any left, I have to look at some of the things they left behind. Gold, Coins, and some of the weapons they used to get them between the 9th and the 11th centuries. Iron rusts so mainly the precious metals now.

This is occasionally found by farmers where the Vikings left it. In the ground, under rocks. Some entombed with their former owners. Those were tough times I guess. And take note, no horns on those helmets.

Move on a thousand years and things are much more civilised, mostly.

Observed the changing of the King’s Guards at the Royal Palace in Oslo. A lot of ceremony, but those guns and bayonets are not made of plastic.
