Description
Birka, an island in the peninsula of islands jutting into the North Sea from what is now Germany, was a thriving center of trade from the late 8th century to the end of the 10th. Among its finds are a number of stag--or any other critter you wish--and diagrams of the knots, so you can add trim and ornaments to your viking garb.
