- 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.

As many of you will have noticed I have turned into somewhat of a Vikings/Teen Wolf blog, apologies to those that don't watch those shows, and also those that do just know I have a general disdain for Sterek fans and this fandom.

Adieu!

Dagger with Jeweled Hilt, Mughal, circa 1605–27

The hilt of the dagger is constructed of heavy sections of gold over an iron core and its scabbard mounts are of solid gold. All the intricately engraved surfaces are set with gems and colored glass finely cut with floral forms. The designs closely parallel those in Mughal painting of the early seventeenth century, suggesting the dagger dates from the reign of Emperor Jahangir (1605–27), whose deep love of nature, especially flowers, is well documented in his memoirs, the Tuzuk. The blade is forged of watered steel.
