In 1996 someone found a Viking hoard at Westerklief on the former island of Wieringen, The Netherlands. The treasure contained Carolingian and Arab coins, bracelets and silver ingots, all buried in an earthenware pot. The coins date the treasure at around 850. Wieringen at that time was a part of Frisia. In 1997 some loose objects like coins and rings were found, in 1999 a second treasure , and in 2001 a third, all on the same tiny island.

Ruslan's Alan Riding Coat - Viking Wire Weaving Trim The wire weaving was made by Smarriveurr (known in the SCA as Torbjorn Ragnvaldsen), and attached after it was completed. In the extant example of wire weaving on cuffs from Viking Age Sweden (Välsgarde grave 12), the wire was poked through the edge of the silk cuff as it was woven through itself; for this project, I was using what we already had on hand, since I'm not the wire artist.
