    Thor's Hammers Found in Britain?

    What thors hammers have been found in England. From what I see, I find these. Does anyone know of any more or information regarding their background?

    Below one from danegeld:

    Repton Thor's hammer
    Copy of a 9th century find from Repton in Yorkshire.


    Sme one from viking crafts:


    From danegeld I find the below one to be:

    Ring and dot Thor's hammer
    A copy of a find from Liverpool in England.


    Bt at viking crafts I find that it is as below, which is very similar.

    6th/7th Century - Ash, Kent, England.


    Stamped Thor's hammer
    Viking Thor's hammer with stamped decoration, based on one from the British Museum.


    Norfolk Thor's hammer
    Long narrow Thor's hammer with granulated detail in centre, copy of a find from Norfolk in England.


    I would like to very much find more example and background info to them, including possible links in British Museum or elsewhere.

    The one from Ash in Kent may have been close to an Englisc chest, in which case it was Thunor's hammer.
