Catalogue of 343 authentic graphic designs in 2D. Collated mainly from the Viking Age but in some cases later (C8th-C12th), they are sourced not only from Scandinavia, but also from Germany, Central Europe (eg. Wolin) and Russia. They’ve been drawn from a vast selection of artefacts – hilts, crossguards, pottery, jewellery, manuscripts, bone and wood carvings etc. Each and every pattern has an English description with its date, origin, place it was found, and meaning, (where possible).
