- 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!

Silver Neck Ring (Torque), Celtic, circa 475–400 B.C.
Neck rings, worn by both men and women, were often seen as symbols of divinity or high rank, while also offering protective powers. Ancient writers noted that the first-century Celtic queen Boudicca, who fought against the Romans in Britain, wore a gold neck ring in battle. Celtic artists often depicted deities wearing or holding such rings.
