Raymond's Quiet Press

In Sweden, before the Vikings, was the Vendel Culture, based around Uppland. Old Uppsala was the political and religious center that had Royal Mounds with incredible riches. These were boat burials with surviving helmets now in Swedish Museum of National Antiquities. This area must have been a flourishing kingdom long before the Vikings! There were riches of iron, fur and slaves, that were used to acquire art that we now see from the grave sites.

These brooches are a new offering from that time, before the Vikings left their home in search of gold! When Sweden itself was having its first golden age.

The brooches are from a customer suggestion. Their depiction of a warrior is just splendid.
