Viking battle-axe Langeid 8
The original of this Viking battle axe was found in the grave Langeid No. 8. Its shaft end in the axe head was coated with copper which was very rare in Norway. A number of similar battle-axes have been found in the River Thames in London. That makes the axe particularly interesting. The 1030 dating of the axe from Langeid shows that it belongs to the same period as the axes found in the Thames. There was a long series of battles along the Thames in the late 10th and early 11th centuries.
