Part two in a series of three planned classes (part 1 not required)
This class includes two parts. The first portion is intended as an introduction to Viking Age Norse “animal ornament” found especially in jewelry. In the second portion we will focus on the Oval Brooches that feature prominently in Viking Age Norse feminine clothing. We will look at some of the major styles, and try to put them into a general chronology and regional context.
Helpful (but not required) for a planned a “103” class where we will try to look at regional styles (or put finds in a regional context) and an analysis of some recreation garb with an eye towards what story it tells. Class will not be recorded
