THE GJERMUNDBU FIND - THE CHIEFTAN WARRIOR

Of all viking age graves exhumed on scandinavian soil, not many can compare with with the Gjermundbu find. The accidental find was made in 1943 on a farm called Gjermundbu (hence the name derr) in Haug a district within Ringerike in central Norway.

The mound or cyst style burial consisted of many artifacts, most of those being weaponry or horse harnesses.

The most notableof these are a helmet, maille shirt, sword, two skegox, two spearheads and eight arrowheads, a scabbard chape, four shield bosses and several seaxes. Stirrups and spurs were also found along with a iron rattle and many other iron artefacts.

It is a shame that no clothing fragments were found due to the fact that the person was cremated.

There is no doubt as to the importance of this find. Most viking age graves yield little more that a axe or seax, let alone a helmet or for that matter a maille shirt. The Gjermundbu helm is the only viking style helmet found on Scandinavian soil. Fragments of similiar eye pieces have also been found in Russia.
