The Viking Age or Carolingian Sword is the prevalent type in Western Europe during the Early Medieval Period. It developed from the Roman Spatha, and in turn gave rise to the Broadsword of the Crusader era. These swords are termed Viking due to the disappearance of Grave goods from Early Christian Francia in the 8th Century. These swords would have been buried with Viking warriors to earn their place in Valhalla, alongside the Viking War God, Odin.

    After a long wait an earring arrived broken and the necklace seemed more important in photography. The ring is bronze or silver?
    I'm quite disappointed
