This large axe was designed solely for battle during the latter part of the Viking Age.
This is an axe that was designed for war, with a light, thin blade capable of making fearsome shearing cuts.
Though obviously highly prized for the afterlife, the axe is only slightly "decorated" with a brass collar around the handle under the head.
Along with coins and a stunning sword, an archaeological team exhumed a Viking broadaxe that hadn't seen the light of day for over 10 centuries.
Educated conjecture has it that these artifacts may have been owned by a wealthy farmer and warrior who was subject to King Cnut, who ruled the North Seas Empire at the time.
