Bog iron was discovered during the Pre-Roman Iron Age, and most Viking era iron was smelted from bog iron. The bog iron deposits of Northern and Northeastern Europe were created after the Ice Age ended, on postglacial plains. In Russia, bog ore was the principal source of iron until the 16th century, when the superior ores of Ural Mountains became available.

This image is based on small hammered gold amulets or offerings called gullgubber which means “little man of gold.” They are believed to date back to the late Iron Age through the early Viking Age. It has been theorized that these images may have depicted the love relationship between the Norse Vanir God Freyr and the jötnar Giantess Gerd. The runes are from the Elder Futhark and read “Love Endures.” Created by Dryad Design, who specializes in Norse / Heathen / Asatru jewelry
