Antiquities – European and Native American



MED 1. English Cabassett ca. 1580-1630.

If you were a Native American observing the English colonists arriving at Jamestowne in 1607, this is the helmet they would have seen them wearing. A very fine and authentic example with decorative bronze rivets. This helmet is over 400 years old and is a relic of Renaissance Europe and the age of discovery. An amazing and impressive relic!


MED 2. Dug Medieval Crossbow Bolt ca. 1350-1450.

These cruel missiles were effective for penetrating chain mail and some plate armor. This example was dug in Southern Germany. 3″ in length. 


MED 3. Excavated Medieval War Lance ca. 13th-15th Century AD.

This Lance head is all business and designed to pierce both chain mail and plate armor. Excellent condition. Found in Central Europe.

Dark Ages: Viking and Migration Age Europe 


DA 1. Viking Pendant made from an Abbasid Caliphate Gold Dinar ca. late 9th Cent. AD.

In the East, the Vikings exchanged furs, slaves, Baltic Amber and weapons to the Arabs in exchange for gold and silver coins. The silver coins or “Dirhems” have been found in hoards as far West as Iceland. The much rarer gold Dinars were used exclusively for jewelry and adornment. This one is in great condition and was carefully crafted into a pendant by the Vikings. This piece surfaced at London auction house but exact provenance is uncertain. For reference see “Viking Art” by James Graham Campbell, page 61 for a photo of the Hoen Hoard found in Norway which contained twenty of these Dinars, all fashioned into pendants identical to this one.


DA 2. Dug Battle Axe Amulet.

Cast in bronze, these amulets are found in several forms and are thought to possess magical and protective properties. Scholars associate them with the Cult of Perun and the Cult of St. Olaf. This example is in very good condition with an untouched patina and was found by a detectorist near Kyiv, Ukraine. 10th-11th Century AD. See this article for more information on these prized artifacts.


DA 3. Excavated Viking Woman’s “Tortoise” Brooch.

These were worn in pairs at the shoulders. This one is an example of the classic Scandinavian type done in the Borre’ style. A small chain was suspended in between that had various amulets and decorative pendants hanging from it. Cast bronze. Ibn Fadlan describes the Viking women wearing these in his Risala or description of his travels among the Kievan Rus. Provenance of Central Europe. Length approx. 3.5″.


DA 4. Rare excavated pair of Silver Visigothic Bow Fibulae from Spain.

This large (6.25″) matching pair are dated to the end of the 5th Century AD. and were most likely found long ago in a Visigothic Row Grave Cemetery on the Central Meseta. Constructed of solid sheet silver with gilt brass palmettes at the junctures. Iron pins on back rusted away. Two of the arrow shaped terminals on one of the fibulae are restorations. These were worn to close a woman’s cloak at the shoulders and were worn in conjunction with rectangular cloisonne’ Belt Buckle Plates with oval loops. Only women of very high status could afford this ornamentation. Ref. “Art of Medieval Spain”Metropolitan Museum of Art page 59 fig. 14.”The Visigoths, an Ethnographic Perspective” by Peter Heather page 413, fig. 11-1.


DA 5. Visigothic Belt Buckle Plaque ca. 7th Cent. AD.

Classic mid 7th Century style featuring stylized griffin design. Deep green patina. This buckle is a reflection of the Byzantine influence on art of the later Visigothic Kingdom. Connecting pin is a modern replacement. Provenance of Merida, Spain. Ref. “The Visigoths, an Ethnographic Perspective” by Peter Heather page 418, fig. 11-5.


DA 6. Ostrogothic Bow Fibula. 5th to 6th Cent. AD.

Nice example made of cast bronze. Radiate head type. Spring pin intact. Used to pin a woman’s cloak at the shoulders. Provenance of the Danube River Valley.


DA 7. Silver Viking Gripping Beast Pendant 10th Century AD.

Classic Scandinavian openwork pendant in Borre’ art style. Pendants identical to this example were found in the Vårby hoard in Sweden, a striking collection of gold and silver objects, hidden in a wood near the sailing route to Birka. The hoard contained objects from countries as far away as Central Asia, indicating that the original owners must have had an extensive network. This particular pendant was found by a detectorist in Poland and is guaranteed 100% authentic. See no. 304 (example to the right) and no. 27, p. 78, fig. 6 in E. Roesdahl and D.M. Wilson, From Viking to Crusader: The Scandinavians and Europe 800-1200.


DA 8. Dug Scandinavian Cross Pendant, 11th Century AD.

Flawless example of this simple interlaced Christian Cross amulet. Made of cast white bronze. Found in a Viking settlement in Central Europe. The Swedish Vikings in the east were professional warriors but also sophisticated traders. They quickly came under the influence of the Byzantine Church in Constantinople where many Viking warriors served the Emperor as his personal bodyguards.


DA 9. Dug Anglo Saxon “Horse Head” Brooch. 5th-6th Cent. AD.

A relic from the very first days when Saxons, Angles and Jutish Pirates overran the undefended Roman Province of Britannia. They drove the Romano Britons into a corner of the island that became Wales. This invasion came in waves and was accompanied with great slaughter and plundering. The Pagan Germanic tribes settled across the island and under the Christianizing influence of the Catholic Church developed a peace loving society with high levels of art and learning. In the year 786, there is an entry in the Anglo Saxon Chronicle that mentions three Longships coming ashore;  

“Here Beorhtric [AD 786-802] took King Offa’s daughter Eadburh. And in his days there came for the first time 3 ships; and then the King’s Reeve (Sheriff) rode there and wanted to compel them to go to the king’s town, because he did not know what they were; and they slew him. Those were the first ships of the Danish men which sought out the land of the English race.” Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (Winchester MS).

Here is the first contact of what would become two and a half centuries of savage Viking attacks and settlement ravaging the whole island. It seems that the blood shed in the Anglo Saxon Conquest came to fall upon their heads when they least expected it and in greater measure. This Pagan Anglo-Saxon Bronze Brooch is remarkable for it’s size, 5.5″ as well as the fantastic green patina and decoration. They were worn in pairs by women and pinned their cloaks at the shoulders. Found by a detectorist in Kent. No repairs or alterations.


DA 10. “Vikings” Reference Book by Tai Larsen.

This great book has been sold out by Amazon and is very hard to get. I have twenty copies that I got directly from the author who has hand signed them all. This book has great pictures of dug Swords, Axes, Amulets, Spears, Arrow Points, Horse Trappings, Belts and much more. Tai composed his own Scandinavian Saga influenced poetry to accompany the pictures. Paperback format and 104 richly illustrated pages. Great stuff and perfect for an introduction to these relics unlike the overwhelmingly exhaustive and academic works by Holger Arbman which cover the excavations at Birka in Sweden. I highly recommend his works if you can find them and want to take your interest further. Two other great introductory volumes I will recommend are “The Viking World” and “Viking Art” both by James Duncan Campbell.

$55.00 ea. 

DA 11. Excavated Viking “Omega” or “Penannular” Brooch.

Made of  bronze and featuring a poppy design. Great patina and no ground action. Pin intact. Used to fasten a Viking Warrior’s Cloak at the shoulder freeing up his sword hand. These are mentioned by Ibn Fadlan in his 10th Century description of the Kievan Rus. Read this amazing account HERE. Dug in Estonia on the Baltic. 8th to 11th Century AD.


DA 12. Excavated Silver Viking Axe/Thor Hammer Amulet.

Well documented in Viking hoards, burials and trade settlements. This hybrid Hammer/Axe type was worn around the neck attached to a larger silver neck ring or bracelet, often in conjunction with Christian Crosses and snake amulets. Thought to possess magical and protective properties. Scholars associate them with the Slavic Cult of Perun and the Scandinavian God Thor. This example is in very good condition with punch mark designs. Found in Central Europe. 10th-11th Century AD. 


DA 13. Excavated Viking Age Cross Amulet.

Early bronze type with traces of yellow or cream colored enamel in recesses. Superb condition. Excavated at a Viking trade settlement in central Europe. 10th-11th Cent. AD. Christianity quickly took hold among the Swedes trading and raiding in the east due to the influence of Byzantine missionaries. The cross of Christ became the most powerful amulet with the greatest protective powers eclipsing the Hammer of Thor, the Axe of Perun and the Lunula of the Moon. 


DA 14. Excavated “Barbed” Arrow Tip ca. 500-1000 AD.

This type of iron point was used by Germanic Tribes during the great European Migrations and into the Viking era. Condition is remarkable. Note socketed shaft. It would be quite unfortunate to be a victim of this cruel missile. 3″ in length. Provenance; Central Europe.


DA 15. Rare European Bronze Age Dagger or Short Sword ca. 2600-1200 BC.

This is an amazing ancient weapon. Note beautiful slick emerald green patina. Aesthetically impressive in it’s design and maintains a very sharp edge. Plowed up recently in an Eastern European farm field. Approx. 14″ in length.


DA 16. Excavated Viking Shield Boss or “Umbo” ca. 9th-12th Century AD.

Superb condition. Professionally cleaned and preserved. These iron bosses protected the hand and were centrally mounted on round wooden shields, covered with leather and painted with symbols and fantastic beasts. This fine example was found in a Viking trade settlement in Eastern Europe.


DA 17. Excavated Frankish Gilt Silver Radiate Brooch. 5th-6th Century AD.

The Franks were one of the fiercest of the Germanic Tribes that overran the Roman Empire. Their name was synonymous with their fighting axes or “Franciscas”. They settled into what is now France and West Germany. This gilt silver brooch with a beast head terminal, was originally part of a matching pair, worn to pin both shoulders of a woman’s cloak. Condition is remarkable with intact iron closure pin and detailed chip carved designs and stamped triangles along the edges. Verbal provenance of France (Frankia).


DA 18. Excavated Scandinavian Cross Amulet, 11th Century AD.

Rare Christian pendant with Nordic interlace design. Found in a Rus (Varangian) settlement in Eastern Europe.


DA 19. Exquisite Granulated Silver Lunula ca. 800-1000 AD.

This high status Slavic amulet was produced in a Polish or other Eastern European workshop. Condition is superb and can be worn today. Lunulas or “Lunitsa” were worn by girls and young women as a protection against the evil eye and demons. Also, for fertility and general female well being. These were worn on necklaces, sometimes with beads and multiple smaller Lunulas depending on the status of the wearer. These have also been found in Viking women’s graves, notably at Birka, in Sweden.


DA 20. Clay Spindle Whorl found in a Viking Settlement, 10th Century AD.

Large size and in great condition. These were employed to spin thread for garments and textiles. Scandinavian women took their skills with them and continued to produce clothing and useful items for their warriors and children. Eyeballed in a plowed field near Chernigiv Ukraine.


DA 21. Twisted Silver Finger Ring found in a Viking Settlement. 10th Century AD.

Flawless condition. These were status symbols and are found in Scandinavian sites from Ireland to Russia. This one comes from Poland.


DA 22. Excavated Silver Axe Amulet. 500-900 AD.

Pagan amulet of a type that is found from Germany to Ukraine. Possibly worn for protection in battle. Germanic and Slavic associations. This one came from Poland.


DA 23. Viking Stirrups and Bit from Pagan Cremation Burial ca. 850-1000 AD.

Fantastic condition. When wrought iron is burned it undergoes a process in which it becomes carbonized and resistant to oxidation. Swords and other iron weapons found in cremations can also have this process or “Gladeskall” offering them an enhanced state of preservation. Only a high status warrior would be able to afford a horse and all that entails. Horses were often slaughtered and cremated with their master for service in Valhalla. Provenance: Eastern Europe.


DA 23. Excavated Viking Warrior’s Battle Sword ca. 10th-11th Century AD.

Provenance of Northern Germany (possibly near the Viking trade emporium of Haithabu). Condition is very good and complete. A classic example of a Petersen Type V Sword. Note gold wire inlay on the cross guard. The pommel most surely had this same decoration, but is is obscured by oxidation. Viking swords in any condition are extremely rare and the vast majority being marketed online and at auctions are fakes or miss-identified. The blade retains its temper and sharp edge in spite of the pitting. When you handle the sword, the first thing that surprises you is how light and balanced it is. A true killing machine in the hands of an experienced warrior. Viking swords were given names such as “Leg Biter”, “Snake of the Byrnie”. Leech of Wounds”, “Flame of Battle” and “Hole Maker”. These swords were very well made with many of the blades being forged in the Frankish Rhineland and traded to the Norse. The Vikings thereafter would add their own decoration and hilts. This trade became painfully acute to the Frankish authorities who enacted measures to ban this commerce as raiding increased. Viking swords were highly prized, and were traded as far as Ireland, North Africa, Constantinople, Russia and even Baghdad. There is a wide variety of intricately crafted hilts and cross guards on these swords influenced by Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, Celtic and Slavic art forms. One can only imagine the scenes of carnage and chaos that were witnessed by this amazing weapon.


DA 24. Excavated Scandinavian Gilt Silver “Fenrir” Wolf Pendant ca. 9th-10th Cent. AD.

Classic example of this Viking pendant. Fashioned in the Scandinavian “Borre” art style. Excellent condition with traces of gold plating. Minor freeze crack on left hand side. Metal detector find from Poland. Authentic and rare. See page 27, figure abb. 3:19 of Greta Arwidsson’s reference book “Birka II:3 Systematische Analysen der Graberfunde” for an identical example found in Sweden. Here is a link to the Norse mythology surrounding this pendant

Rings with this inscription are often excavated in military contexts. Most recently from excavations in Dacia (Romania). From an old time British collection. 


ANT R 6. Ancient Roman Fascinus (Phallus) Pendant/Amulet, 1st-2nd Century AD.

In ancient Roman religion and magic, the fascinus or fascinum was the embodiment of the divine phallus. The word can refer to phallus effigies and amulets, and to the spells used to invoke his divine protection. Pliny calls it a medicus invidiae, a “doctor” or remedy for envy (invidia, a “looking upon”) or the evil eye. The English word “fascinate” ultimately derives from Latin fascinum and the related verb fascinare, “to use the power of the fascinus”, that is, “to practice magic” and hence “to enchant, bewitch”. Catullus uses the verb at the end of Carme 7, a hendecasyllabic poem . Phallic charms, were ubiquitous in Roman culture, appearing as objects of jewelry such as pendants and finger rings, relief carvings, lamps, and wind chimes (tintinnabula). Fascinus was thought particularly to ward off evil from children, mainly boys, and from conquering generals. The protective function of the phallus is usually related to the virile and regenerative powers of an erect phallus. Varro notes the custom of hanging a phallic charm on a baby’s neck, and examples have been found of phallus-bearing rings too small to be worn except by children. A 2017 experimental archaeology project suggested that some types of phallic pendant were designed to remain pointing outwards, in the direction of travel of the wearer, in order to face towards any potential danger or bad luck and nullify it before it could affect the wearer. The pendant offered here is made of cast bronze was probably found by a metal detectorist in England.

Fine Apulian Ceramic Pelike (used for containing cremated remains) in superb condition with no repairs or restoration whatsoever. Painted with two female figures and palmettes on the sides. Approx. 8″ tall. Provenance of Southern Italy (Magna Graecia).

ANT R 15. Ancient Cimmerian Iron Spear Point, 7th Century BC.

The Cimmerians were related to the Scythians and were later displaced by them. Also nomadic steppe dwellers, they were the bane of the Assyrian Empire. This spear point is in great condition and very long, approx. 20″. Found in Ukraine.


ANT R 16. Excavated Roman Knife with Lioness Head Handle. 1st-2nd Century AD.

Remarkable condition with intact iron blade and cast bronze handle. Knives like this would have had many uses and been carried by average Romans.


ANT R 17. Ancient Greek Signet Ring with Pan Playing his Flute, ca. 2nd-3rd Cent. BC.

High quality excavated bronze ring with a sharply detailed inset of the Greek God Pan playing his flute. Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, rustic music and impromptus, and companion of the nymphs.[3] He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. With his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is also recognized as the god of fields, groves, wooded glens and often affiliated with sex; because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and the season of spring.[4]In Roman religion and myth, Pan’s counterpart was Faunus, a nature god who was the father of Bona Dea, sometimes identified as Fauna; he was also closely associated with Sylvanus, due to their similar relationships with woodlands. No doubt a metal detector find. Provenance of Southern Europe.
