Bronze Drakkar Longship bangle

  • Sale
  • Regular price £50.95



Based on archaeological discoveries, this bangle is hand made out of bronze and represents a dragon longship, or Drakkar, as its central motif. Slightly adjustable, it will fit wrists of 16 to 21 cm.

Longships were potentially called skeiðar (sing. skeið) if they were extremely long, serpent- or drakkar ships when dragon-heads were present, and snekke/snekkja when slightly smaller. They used both oars and sails to reach their frighteningly high speeds which were so instrumental to the Viking raiders’ hit-and-run tactics. They were also narrower than most of the ships from the early Viking Age; the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Denmark, states that archaeologically, ships have to be at least five times as long as they were wide to be classified as longships. The shields of the warriors hung on the outside of the ship.

This bracelet is adjustable and will fit wrists between 16 and 21cm, but bending it repeatedly can weaken the metal. It is recommended to only bend it once to adjust the fit.
