Viking Oval Brooches

Something every viking warrior should give his wife as a present after a successful raid...

The large oval, tortoise or turtle brooches were part of the women´s dress of the viking age. They were used to fasten an often rich decorated and coloured apron (or even a closed dress with shoulder straps) below the shoulders (pic. 2). Well preserved archaeological finds in Pskov (Russia) give new insights to the viking women´s dress. 

A large number of original finds of tortoise brooches were made in the entire skandinavian world, some special designs were used in Finland and at the island of Gotland. Imported brooches were found everywhere the vikings setteled, even in England, Ireland, Russia and the Normandy. Scholars recognize regional differences and temporary developments, but the original finds also proof the social status of their former female owners. Simple and cheap turtle brooches from tin were also found as well as valuable and awesome decorated specimens from bronze and gilded silver.
