- Not actually Thor -

-----------------------------------------------------

Greetings weary travelers of tumblr, I am Not Thor Odinson or Oliver, which ever you prefer really?
Well I suppose I ought to explain myself. I love history and especially arms and armour, I am just a little too obsessed with mythology and Norse gods.

I love way to many TV shows and films to keep track of but I hope you find something you enjoy. Feel free to talk to me or message me anytime, I'm always happy to hear from followers and answer any question. I suggest you read my about my page before you follow. Adieu!

The one minute. The soldier’s minute. In a battle, that’s all you get. One minute of everything at once.

Confession: Although I adore games like Skyrim and Fallout, I think they’re incredibly lonely games to play. I think that the companions play a major factor in not just Dragon Age but most Bioware games. With so much pressure on the protagonists’ shoulder, it’s nice to have someone there to share the burden and it’s nice to have companions with thoughts and personality and opinions, not just hired aids or pack mules.

He used to ask me what I wanted to do with my life. I told him I just wanted to have a good time.

Viking Sword 

  • Dated: 9th/10th century
  • Measurements: overall length 94.5 cm. Blade length 79.4 cm

Presented in conserved excavated condition with patina characteristic of a river find, the sword has a broad flat blade tapering slightly over its upper third, formed with a short blunt point. The central part of the blade surface is showing distinct pattern-welded horizontal patterns formed in three vertical parallel lines over the greater part of the blade length, both “herringbone” and wavy linear.

The edges and the area immediately below the point are forming a frame forged in a less distinct pattern of vertical irregular wavy lines, fitted with pommel of two-part construction. The lower piece is elliptical with horizontal medial ridge, while the upper part is thinner in section, both sides being vertically segmented by two shallow recessed panels bordered by a series of very narrow ridges and a pair matching narrow flutes. Together they are forming a lobated upper edge, but the crosspiece is a modern reconstruction “aged” to match. 

For a detailed study of swords from German collections dating from the 8th-12th centuries and for their categorisation, see Alfred Geibig, “Beiträge zur morphologischen Entwicklung des Schwertes im Mittelalter”, in Offa-Bücher. Band 71, Neumünster 1991. The pommel on the presented sword is classified by Geibig as Kombinationstyp 3 (see pp. 33-36, fig. 4.)
