This is your opportunity to own an incredible piece of Ancient Viking history! Dating back to the 11th Century, this is a REAL Viking warrior's brooch!
Viking warriors would wear these small metal broaches on their jerkins (leather, sleeveless jackets) to help protect against sword wounds in both a physical and superstitious context.
Due to their role as a protective item, they held a strong spiritual significance to the Viking warriors.
This beautiful ~.75" diameter bronze brooch would make for an amazing start or addition to any collection. It can be shipped worldwide.
