Bone Cloak & Hair Pins

Long pins are fairly common in Viking Age archaeology, some are certainly cloak pins but others could be hair pins or even both.

Contemporary depictions of women often include ornate hairstyles which, although often stylised, could represent plaiting held in place by pins.

Whilst we endeavour to make all of our reproductions as close to the originals as possible, these are handmade from natural materials so slight variations may occur.
