The Varangian Guards were Viking mercenaries who operated far beyond their native shores as an elite force within the Byzantine Armies. Descendants from a legendary line of warriors, the Varangian Guard was formed after a group of Viking mercenaries made a major contribution to the Byzantine Emperor Basil II’s victory over rebel forces in 988 AD

VIKING Animal Art Pendant Bronze 10th C JELLINGE Style Norse VIKING Knotwork

Viking Animal Art Pendant cast in Bronze - this is 10th Century JELLINGE Style Norse Viking Knotwork for $44.99 with free shipping. I loved the sterling silver version of this pendant so much I had the artists create these beautiful pendants in bronze. When I received the first order of this pendant I was amazed with the quality and beautiful shine. I now prefer this lovely animal art pendant in bronze (but the silver is still lovely as well!)

Viking armor

Viking shield. I have a Old shield, but could not find the exact pic. It still has the leather strap they they used to hold it, it is attached on one end. My ex brother-inlaw brought it back from overseas while he was in the army.
