Jorvik Thors Hammer
The Jorvik Thor's Hammer is a modern take on the classic hammer of the Viking period. The shaft is detailed with a design from a carved cross from the Isle of Man and depicts a Jelling style dragon. The design on the head of the hammer is taken from a bone trial piece found in the Coppergate excavations, York. It shows a typical style knotwork from the Viking period. It is interesting to note that the original carving from York was incomplete but this is finished it off for this new design. This pewter is cast and hand finished in Scotland.
