On the 8th June 793 the first Viking attack is recorded in England. The abbey of Lindisfarne in Northumbria, a centre of learning that was famous across Europe was destroyed in a Viking raid. Monks were killed or taken away as slaves and the church treasures were taken away. From this moment onwards, Viking raids on England became more frequent until they were eventually defeated in a series of battles by King Alfred the Great. The last Viking raid on England was defeated by King Harold II in 1066. The Vikings were ferocious warriors and saw death in battle as means to entering the Halls of Valhalla – where they could fight all day and feast all night.
The 3 Lobe Viking Sword is based on a late Viking design from around 1050-1100 and is contemporary with the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066. A similar sword was found on Canwick Common in Norfolk and is now held in the British Museum collection. It features a forged and fullered steel blade designed for hacking and slashing and is hilted with a short guard and 3 lobed pommel. The wooden scabbard is wrapped with brown leather to match that of the leather wrapped sword grip.
