Cross-shaped pendants and the treasure find from Hiddensee
Among the most beautiful pieces of jewellery of the Viking Age are those made in the so-called granulation or filigree technique. Beads, wires, eyelets, rings and other small parts were soldered onto various types of base plates. So-called patrices were found in the harbour basin of the Viking settlement of Haithabu (see picture). These prototypes were used to make cross-shaped base plates of precious metal sheet, which were later refined by granulation. Particularly high-quality amulets made of precious metal are, for example, the Thorhammer from Scania and the gold treasure from Hiddensee from the 10th century AD.
This largest gold treasure of the Viking Age on German soil was discovered between 1872 and 1875 on the beach of Neuendorf on the Baltic Sea island.
