Seeing the sails of a Viking long ship on the horizon would have put fear into the heart of their enemies.
While the Vikings had many styles of ship, the most fearsome was the Drakkar, which were also decorated to resemble a dragon.
This unique silver pendent represents the dragon's head that would have sat on the bow of the ship.
But the Vikings did not just use their ships to conquer their neighbours.
They carried them to Russia and Asia to trade for exotic goods.
They also took Viking explorers to the Americas, a millennium before their European brothers.
Drakkar and other Viking ships carried the Vikings through life, on clear windless days and in the midst of the most violent storms. Embrace the Viking spirit of adventure with this unique Drakkar pendent.
