Finding poetry in the ground – a kenning of silver from Neble, Zealand

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch

Abstract

A circular pendant or brooch found near Neble, Zealand, is interpreted as a double-sided amulet, decorated respectively on one side as a shield and as a wheel on the reverse. This dual iconography is suggested as a material reference to the kenning shield-wheel, known from Snorri Sturluson´s Skáldskaparmál.
