Several pieces of Viking jewelry, some of which contain gold, have been uncovered at a farm site in Denmark that dates as far back as 1,300 years.

Although the Vikings have a popular reputation as being raiders, they were also farmers, traders and explorers, and the craftsmanship seen in this jewelry demonstrates their artistic skills.

That jewelry was not necessarily made by Vikings. They were besides fierce raiders good traders, with routes spanning from Sweden to the silk road.
