Viking Objects

Explore objects from the Viking Age in the East Midlands

In this collection you will find links to images of a wide range of objects associated with the Viking Age in the East Midlands (and a few from nearby counties). The objects are from archaeological excavations, or from chance finds. More recently many finds have been made by metal detectorists. We reproduce images of the original objects with the permission of the museums that own them, or of the Portable Antiquities Scheme which records finds by members of the public.

We are also delighted to provide photographs of reproductions of the original objects made by Adam Parsons of Blueaxe Reproductions. The reproductions are intended to give you an idea of what such items looked like when they were new, rather different from the often very sorry state they are in now.
