In 1904, a large burial mound was excavated at Oseberg in eastern Norway. More than 80 fragments of narrow tapestries patterned with figural motifs were among the unearthed artifacts. The exquisitely woven tapestries depict a myriad of finely shaped animals, humans, carriages, and houses. We can see battle scenes, warriors portrayed as animals, and hanged men as well as solemn processions. Part of the symbolism of these images can be linked to the warrior ideology and its surrounding myths during the Viking Age. Past and present, magic and poli- tics are woven together, presenting powerful stories. The unique tapestries from Oseberg give us a window into the Viking Age worldview that cannot be found elsewhere.
