Band from Øvre Berge, Lyngdal, Norway. Close in time, geography and style to the Snartemo band. The photos of the original are from the book Snartemofunnene by Bjørn Hougen, 1935. Two yellow, one red and one brue thread per tablet. You can't really see what is the front and what is the back of this band. Tablet woven by Randi Stoltz (4th to 7th centuries CE)

Happy with the exchange boarder too!
