There really isn’t much that can be compared to riding a horse through the mountains and streams of the Icelandic countryside 😍 (even when i was freezing half to death 😂) this was by far one of the most magical moments ever ✹ 🐎 #travellifestyle #iceland #reykjavik #icelandichorse #travelmore #tesvichadventures #bucketlisttraveler #bucketlist #magicalday #thisiswhywetravel #instatravel #obsessedwithiceland #vikinghistory #icelandculture #icelandbucketlist

Roskilde is an old hub of the Viking land and sea trade routes over a thousand years ago. It is one of oldest Denmark's cities and first capital of Denmark đŸ‡©đŸ‡° . . . #denmark #roskilde #fjord #vikings #vikingship #exploring #history #vikinghistory #aroundtheworld #travelphotography #travelblog #scandinavia #nordic #your_dream_is_calling_your_name

Erik the Red’s birth name was Erik Thorvaldsson. He had hair and beard the color of bright red. This coupled with his hot-headed temper, he earned the name Erik the Red.

Trullhalsars gravfÀlt. (Anga 3:1) - This Iron Age grave field was probably my favorite ancient site in Gotland so I had to make multiple posts for it! It is a truly magical place with 320 burials consisting of 1 burial cairn (gravröse), 291 circular stone-settings (runda stensÀttningar), 1 stone ship (skeppssÀttning), 26 stone circles (domarringar), 31 standing stones (resta stenar/bautastenar) and 1 stone row (stenrad). The reason I liked this grave field was the special stone-settings that are built in an unusual way. They have a ring wall made of limestone then stones are piled up inside the wall. Four of them have a grave orb (gravklot) placed at the center. The stone circles are also very nice and some of them are made with large stones are placed on top of 3 smaller stones. The largest is 15 meters in diameter. The 10 meter long stone row stands out in the grave field and is made of 14 standing stones and one stone layed on the ground. - The reason for the name "Trullhalsar" is unknown but "trull" is the Gotlandic word for "troll" and "halsar" is "necks" so "Trollnecks". My guess is that the round walled graves look like the necks of Trolls but who knows! The first time the grave field is mentioned is by Carl Gustav Gottfried Hilfeling in 1801. The archaeologist Birger Nerman excavated here 1915-1916. In 1930 Trullhalsar was bought by "Gotlands fornvÀnner" and in 1933 they restored many of the graves. Another excavation took place recently 2004-2006 and most of the finds date from 600-700CE but the grave field was likely used for a much longer time period. The burial cairn is Bronze Age so it may have been used for 3 millennia. Most of the graves date from the Vendel Period ("Vendeltiden", 550-793) and Viking Age ("Vikingatiden", 793-1042). The walled "pie-like" graves are characteristic to the Vendel Period. - #trullhalsar #anga #gotland #sverige #sweden #scandinavia #skandinavien #norden #history #historia #sverigeshistoria #gravefield #gravfÀlt #fornlÀmning #fornminne #forntid #prehistory #ancient #ironage #jÀrnÄlder #jÀrnÄldern #viking #vikings #vikingar #vikinghistory #vikingage #archaeology #arkeologi #ancientmonument #swedenimages

Christianity is not my dogma. I abide to no laws of cosmology, nor prescribe to an ideology that confines my opportunities to live, love and learn. These buildings do not stand for my beliefs, and I do not bow to the religion they represent - I desperately wish more remained of the ancient beliefs preceding the invasion of Christianity, but this is all there is, and all that is left is to admire what marvellous artwork and designs we can observe from the Viking period. I am forever grateful, Heddal, tusen takk - jeg er sĂ„ glad at du har overlevd đŸ–€đŸș
