Viking Helmets

This is Jorvik (York) Viking Festival week. Today I learnt that Vikings wasted nothing, they even collected human ear wax and melted it down to use as wood polish! These helmets displayed on a wild boar skin will be used in some of the events taking place this week.


  1. Nice assortment of helmets.
    The sculptures reminded me of von Hagens work too.

  2. Each helmet is slightly different, perhaps personalized for each Viking?

  3. Your Viking festival sounds like so much fun. I'd love to attend one of these days.
