Viking Textiles - Toensberg, Norway

Good morning,

In the Viking Museum in Toensberg, Norway, I especially enjoyed the displays about textiles from the Viking era.

I'm sorry this didn't come out better.  The museum was quite dark and I was using flash.

How elegant!
 This is a model reconstruction of the Slottsfjellet at the top of the mountain behind the museums.

It was fun to imagine the people who lived here, the lives they lived, and the clothing that they wore.

More to come....

I'm loving the Niddy Noddy. I have a couple new ones but would love and older one to display.

Beautiful clothing and I always enjoy the historical lives of different cultures.
