Freyja's Friday - Viking Weapons

Freyja's Friday - Viking Weapons Vikings weren’t just formidable on the sea, on land they were a fearsome sight, each warrior was skilled in the use of a variety of tools and weapons including the Seax a form of large knife , a Sverd or sword, the Skegg ox or axe and the Skjoldr, which was the iconic round shield. However Vikingr used the sword more than the axe, it was a prized possession passed down within families, often inscribed with runes to make it sacred, and was often given a name, and no not like Brian or David, but names such as Leggbir meaning Leg biter or Gunnlogi, flame of battle.
