Viking Age: Development of material now and then (in swedish)
Sweden takes a leading role in the world industry when it comes to metals with its mineral rich bedrock. The guided tour gives an insight into how the Vikings benefited from these minerals to manufacture helmets, shields and swords. How did these items look like today's material development?
