Thor's Hammer (VP6)
For Inner StrengthRed bearded Thor, the Vikings’ favourite god, was the people’s champion with his supernatural strength and feisty humour. When he swung his hammer, Mjöllnir, Thor was invincible. Small hammers were often worn as tokens of identification and loyalty.
The Vikings were well known for their love of adornments and jewellery. Our Trove of Valhalla collection pays tribute to many of their iconic designs. Lovingly reproduced, the original meanings of each pendant are explained on its accompanying Viking leaflet.
