In Norway every girl and young women has a traditional costume. These costumes are highly sustainable, they are made in such a way that they can easily made smaller and larger. These costumes stay in the family for a long time. Revalueing traditions and craftmanship will be or is already a counter movement to all the cheap textile around.

A Viking warship replica, Havhingsten af Glendalough (the Sea Stallion of Glendalough)

This stone is perhaps the oldest #Viking rune stone found in Södermanland. The vertical rune lines and lack of ornamentation tells that this is an early inscription. The stone is from the second half of the 900s. The rune stone was actually found inside a burial mound, in 1856. It had probably been placed on the top of the grave in the beginning, but over the passing 800 years since it was raised, it seems to have slowly sunk into the ground and been hidden by the growing grass.
