One of the best known items from the Viking Age is the Thor's Hammer (Mjölnir in Old Norse). The Thor's Hammer was worn by pagans who followed the Norse Gods and in particular, Thor. The Thor's Hammer was a magical weapon carried by the God and made by dwarves. It had many powers and the image of the hammer was usually worn by Heathens, one of the most famous and instantly recognisable Hammers is the archaeological example from Skåne in Sweden. 

The original hammer was made of silver with filigree ornamentation and was found in an undocumented location in Skåne, Sweden. It belonged to a collection owned by the baron Claes Kurck, who donated it to the Historical Museum in Stockholm in 1895, where it is to this day. Although the location of the find is unknown, unreliable sources says that the hammer was found in Kabbarp near Staffanstorp in Skåne, Sweden.
