    THE MIGHTY NORSE GOD LOOKED AT ME !!! (Update !!)

    Hi TNetters

    Today I had this feeling, I don´t know if you have experienced it, you hold your breath and the small hairs on the back of your neck rise and you get goosebumps !

    I was searching my newly found place from the Iron age. Many brooches and other finds have come from this place during the last two weeks. The finds reach from the Roman Iron Age about 100 AD to the early Viking Age about 800 AD.

    I had a very good signal with my Vaquero and picked up a smal item full of dirt.
    At first I thought it was some modern item like a small devise from a motor or some electrical instrument.

    Then I noticed that there was a little bit of golden shining in the middle of the circle that was full of dirt.
    I took my water bottle from my pocket and washed it carefully. The dirt fell out, and ...

    THE MIGHTY NORSE GOD ODIN / WODAN STARED AT ME !!

    As the first person for maybe 1.400 years I saw his face.
    That was when I got that feeling that I mentioned at the top.

    It is made of pure silver and the small face in the circle (messures 1,2 cm) is golden.
    The find is with very big certainty depicting the highest god Odin / Wodan of the old Norse religion, because the image is known among others from the ancient Sceata Coins. It seems to be a small broche / clasp of some kind. The archaeologists will examin it more closely.

    Today I am a very happy man !

    This find is absolutely unique.

    Are you saying it's made of silver AND gold??
    That alone would be an amazing find, but to add history to it = GOOSEBUMPS!

    Be sure to update your title (THE MIGHTY NORSE GOD LOOKED AT ME ) when you have info from the archeologists.

    CONGRATULATIONS! I am pea-green with envy. But in a good way!

    Seen this image on a few items but button brooch springs to mind first, not that yours is, no idea What does the back look like?

    I know/you know this is a special & very commercial image & find I would love one of those

    Above is the most common use of the image on a brooch.

    Thanks all

    @Born free

    It is silver and it is gold plated in the circle with the face.

    @CRUSADER

    Thanks !
    It is not a brooch of that kind.
    It would rather be a kind of clasp I think.

    Here some detail photos !

    Wow that is a stunning find, I have seen the Anglo saxon Sceats with Woden head Image, it doe's look a bit like a button brooch but the outher pictures would say not

    Anyway a great find, and Rare, and truly Banner Worthy

    It looks like it is hinged, perhaps some type of Toggle or Fastner, wish I had found it

    I know, just giving an example of the image that I have seen elsewhere (which would date it somewhat).

    Now that you have posted the reverse, I'm at a complete loss, but can't wait to see what you find out.

    Forgot to vote, but it is a no brainer (going in now)

    You were found by Odin. No wonder that Your hair was standing up. Absolutely banner....but to have Odin with You is much more! I would NEVER give that piece out of my hand...

    Hmm, very nice find mate. Looks to me like maybe a small chain or strap may have gone through it. Might be horse related or a sword belt/scabbard clip. I'll wait for the experts opinions lol.

    Banner! Well done.

    Incredible find Dane!

    I'd bet any museum in the world would pay big bucks to have that in their collection!

    Congratulations! MY BANNER VOTE IS IN
