Awesome collection, and good work on the self made stuff. Viking culture has a special place with me.

This stuff is really awesome. I'm looking into viking reenactment and getting into metal working myself. I just don't know where to start.

If there is any local blacksmiths where you live, ask them if you can you visit their workshop. And maybe they can also teach you something or give advices how it is best to start smithing there.

Heh. Those look like pretty much more used nowadays, or what is left from them. That shield is shattered in many pieces, only the leather edging keeps it somehow in shape. Drums head is peeled of. One seax needs repairing and another is in the bottom of the river and so on :D

wow, quite the history!
only thing that comes near this is my hand sewed dress that i wore only once in a storm where 2 people died and when i wanted to wear it on the next festival and had to dry it by the fire it fell in and half burned. so this needs repairing aswell.
but other than that my things are all either quite new or still intact - very boring.
i guess i should really start to train close combat - much more interesting things seem to happen than if you just sit in your camp quietly, like a nice washerwoman, and sew =D

Usually interesting things dont come to you, you must go for them. (but sometimes they almost overrun you)

I did not have any exact model for it, i just made one. As far that i know it's possible that there have been jaw harps in scandinavia during viking age, but i have never seen any archeological find.

Frame is hot forged from iron and tongue is grinded out from thin metal saw blade.

It sounds pretty good, but the tongue is little bit too rigid, if it would be thinner the playing would be easier.

"Lo There do I see my Father
Lo there do I see my Mother
and my sister's and brothers
Lo there do I I see the line of my people
Back to the beginning
Lo, they do call to me
They bid me take my place among them
In the halls of Valhalla
Where the Brave
May Live
Forever."

I think that originally something like that was said by slave girl who were sacrificed in viking burial, somewhere at volga. According Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan.

But just like that it was on poor movie called 13th warrior :D

Would you suggest any not so "poor" films? I am afraid hollywood has a bad habit of butchering any culture they can get their hands on.

hmm.. now this is hard question, as there surely is not many good historic films on hand. One pretty good "viking movie" is Stara Basn, it is polish movie, not 100% historical, but much better than any hollywood shit I think.

Then there is one russian "Alexandr Nevsky. Fight on Neva" movie from 2008. That movie is bit later than viking, its 13th century. Movie looks good. Costumes and props of that movie are well made, but that is all good in it. The story is just horrible russian patriotism. And as finn I dont found it really fascinating when it's fighting against swedish, and if you know history, the finland was part of sweden back then also. so it is against finns too...

From finland there is mini serie called "rauta aika" "age of iron" its bit weird filming of kalevala. The costumes are mainly all but real iron age, and as I said it is really weird movie at sometimes, but I think that it is still pretty cool serie. It has good atmosphere.

Icelandic Hrafninn Flygur was pretty good also. Its viking age. Costumes and stuff are not best ones, but the story is good. There is two more movies of the same serie, but I have not seen them.

No more "good" early medieval movies come to my mind. There really is not many of them.
