    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    This is the only gold axe (Catalogue number Ts11937) that has been found from the viking age, and was originally covered completely in gold. The ornamentation on the axe is a dragon in Ringerike style.

    Did you know that one of the Norse gods was said to carry a golden axe? Forseti, the son of Baldur and Nanna is the Norse god of justice. He lives in a fort called Glitne (shiny) which has silver roofs and gold columns. Both men and gods alike came to him for his advice and justice in difficult cases. Perhaps that is why we in Norway even to this day say that something is done with "forsett" when something bad is done with purpose. In Norway we have a place that retains the name, the farm Forsetlund in the Eastern part of the country. Forseti was also known to the Frisians. The President of Iceland is called Forseti Íslands.

    The axe was most likely crafted in Norway and it has been dated till around year 1000. It was found in Botnhamn, Norway in the 1930's. It was a symbol of wealth and power.

    A great silver treasure was also found nearby, perhaps the two are connected.

    A Young woman, Kirsten Svendsdatter, found something extraordinary when she was working in the fields on the 20th of July 1639. It was a 71 cm long horn made of pure gold with a weight of 3,1 kg. The find is incredible, but not unique because almost one hundred years later in 1734 a man called Erich Lassen found another horn a few meters from the first find-spot. This horn was incomplete but actually weighed 3,7 kg. The horns were made around 400 AD and may have been used for ritual purposes. The horns are decorated with a myriad of different animals and human beings involved in various activities. The short horn is also decorated with runes. The text runs like this in the latin alphabet: “Ek Hlewagastiz Holtijaz horna tawidō”. The translation into English runs like this: “I Hlewagastiz Holtijaz made the horn”. The Meaning of the name “Hlewagastiz” is not certain, but "Lee guest" or "Fame guest" have been proposed. Holtijaz could be a patronymic, "son of Holt", or it could be “from Holt” which means wood/forest. The original horns were stolen in 1802, so the ones we have today are reconstructions based on drawings. It is, however, debated how the horns curved, and therefore different interpretations have been made.



    If you want to see the different interpretations of the horns, it is possible to see them at the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen.
