Hi!

After a lot of work we are finally finished with our new resource page!

On the page you will find over 2100 pictures from Norwegian and Danish museums (Copenhagen, Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Trelleborg, Ribe, Esbjerg and Horten). These are both large overview pictures as well as close ups of details that would be hard hard to see with your eyes. Taken by nerds for nerds Happy

Among the cooler things is several pictures of all the swords exibited in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim... which is a lot Happy


You can also find PDFs of Jan Pettersens "The Norwegian Viking Swords" and Anders Lund Loranges "The Earlier Iron Ages Swords".


The page can be found here:

http://www.vikverir.no/ressurser.html

If you have any questions, just ask them in this tread and myself or Audun will try to answer them.



Hope you like the page Happy

Nils, on behalf of Vikverir

May I say congratulations and thank you! I thought I'd run over for a quick peek. There won't be anything quick about this it seems. There is far to much stuff to go through, to do it in one sitting. An incredible and much appreciated effort!
