    Fylfot/Swastika Found in Britain?

    I see that the symbol has been found in Britain in a pagan context - Germanic pre-Christian use of the swastika. Does anyone have any more images of the items listed here or any more information on them? Or infact any more examples? Some info on Fylfot from Odinist British writers.

    The early Anglo-Saxon ship burial at Sutton Hoo, England, contained numerous items bearing the swastika, now housed in the collection of the Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
    Images? Reference?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Swastika is clearly marked on a hilt and sword belt found at Bifrons in Bekesbourne, Kent, in a grave of about the 6th century.
    Images? Reference?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hilda Ellis Davidson theorized that the swastika symbol was associated with Thor, possibly representing his hammer Mjolnir - symbolic of thunder - and possibly being connected to the Bronze Age sun wheel.[1] Davidson cites "many examples" of the swastika symbol from Anglo-Saxon graves of the pagan period, with particular prominence on cremation urns from the cemeteries of East Anglia.[1] Some of the swastikas on the items, on display at the Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, are depicted with such care and art that, according to Davidson, it must have possessed special significance as a funerary symbol.[1] The runic inscription on the Sæbø sword (ca. AD 800) has been taken as evidence of the swastika as a symbol of Thor in Norse paganism.
    I cannot find any. Images? Reference?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Located on the Woodhouse Crag, on the Northern edge of Ilkley Moor in West Yorkshire there is a swastika shaped pattern engraved in a stone, known as the Swastika Stone. IMAGE. In the figure in the foreground of the picture is a 20th century replica; the original carving can be seen a little further away, at the centre-left of the picture. [2]
    Ah, this one is documented... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika_Stone



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Searching the 'Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology' I find reference to a "Openwork disc, "swastika" type." - see below. Anyne got any images of this?

    SOURCE: Cambridgeshire County Council; Cra'ster.M.D. SOURCE DATE:
    PLACE: Europe; British Isles; England; Cambridgeshire; Cambridge; Fen Ditton; Fleam Dyke (MAA: 1986-09-09)
    PERIOD: Anglo Saxon
    CONTEXT: See catalogue card for sketch diagram of object; Found: Fleam Dyke 'Old label accompanies objects, reads: "Found in the ditch during road widening. dd Cambs County Council and M.D. Cra'ster. Lent J.W. Clarke." S-J Harknett 27/4/2001' (MAA: 1986-09-09)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A search on the British museum website found a burial urn adorned with Swastikas:

    Early Anglo-Saxon, 5th-6th century AD
    Probably from North Elmham, Norfolk

    [/B]http://www.britishmuseum.org/explore...ion_urn-1.aspx

    "... whether the swastika has any meaning in early Anglo-Saxon England or whether it is purely decorative, is uncertain."

    An interesting find on the British Museum website also drew up a Anglo-Saxon Cremation Urn adorned with runic scripture:

    From: Loveden Hill, Lincolnshire
    Date: 6th-7th century AD

    http://www.britishmuseum.org/explore...ation_urn.aspx

    Neat. The symbol itself can be found in a variety of cultures around the world as it is somthing of neolithic antiquity.

    [You can even find the symbol in Tibet, China, India, and Japan.]

    Then there is the triskele which looks similar but not quite the same as the swastika.

    Of course anymore it is only seen in it's WW2 context.





    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.

    Landers, I have posted several pictures on the Gallery section of the Swastika Stone on Ilkley Moor. There is also a thread about it here - http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=113023

    Whilst researching the stone, I also found this website - http://www.themodernantiquarian.com/site/95

    I know that it is referenced to represent Mjollnir but is their any mention of it representingthe sun? I know Polling says so in his Anglo Saxon Warrior book. Anywhere else?

    I remember watching a documentary a while back saying that there is apparently three Fylfot's located in three different European countries forming a perfect triangle, don't know if its really true or not though.

    If you read the book 'The wisdom of the runes' theres a double page spread showing swastika variants located around Britain, Eire and Europe mainly at various religious or archaeological sites. Theyre only drawn depictions of the real ones but itll give you an idea of where to find them
