There was a flourishing civilisation in Northern Europe long before the Viking era. This video shows some archaeological artefacts from England and Sweden dating from the Nordic Bronze Age, the Migration era and the Vendel era.
I also have some footage of the living history group Wulfheodenas whose replicas of the Vendel and Valsgärde helmets are without equal. They came to visit the pagan burial mounds at Gamla Uppsala which was a fitting place for a photo shoot. I also had ago at making one of the foils by hammering a pressblech with the help of the Smith David Roper.
