  2. Round Box Brooch, 700–900 
Viking; Made in Gotland, Sweden
Copper alloy
A menagerie of tiny animals inhabits the interlace patterns on this round brooch. The four oval compartments on the top show beasts with round eyes, open jaws, claw feet, and intricately entwined bodies. Known as a box brooch because it was used as a container for small objects, it would have been worn by a Viking woman on the island of Gotland to secure her shawl at the collar.

  3. Grupo de estudios nórdicos en México, España y Latinoamérica

    Hello, this is a message and invitation to all of my spanish speaking followers:

    En los últimos meses me he estado interesando más y más por el estudio de los pueblos nórdicos de una manera más seria y académica, sin embargo es frustrante el hecho de que prácticamente no se hacen investigaciones de este tema en español; por lo que decidí dar un paso para remediar esto y crear un grupo en Facebook llamado “Estudios nórdicos en México, España y Latinoamérica”.

    Sé que no es mucho, pero creo que es una buena manera de comenzar, como un punto de discusión y difusión en donde todos los interesados en el tema podamos estar en contacto y compartir bibliografía, eventos, convocatorias, noticias y demás. 

    Arqueólogos, historiadores, antropólogos, linguistas y todas las demás personas que estén interesadas en promover el estudio serio de los vikingos en español son bienvenidos. 

    El link al grupo está AQUÍ.

    Saludos y gracias.
