Viking axes were a key weapon during the Viking Age. They were a symbol of strength, courage, and power. The axes used by the elite were often decorated with silver inlays. These often contained motifs that could be interpreted as Christian or pagan.
The photo to the left shows two reproduction battle axes and a historic axe head. The historic axe head resembles Frankish throwing axes that predate the Viking Age.
