Special Event Piece 

The first recorded Vikings came to Ireland in 795 AD. Islands off the north and west coasts were plundered. Later on, Viking fleets appeared on the major river systems. Monasteries were one of the main targets of Viking raiders because they were likely to contain valuable loot.

Several Viking bases, including Dublin, Waterford, Limerick, Cork and Wexford grew into Ireland’s first towns during the 10th century. A revolutionary development that helped transform Irish society. But Ireland remained overwhelmingly rural, based on a mixed farming economy.

By the end of the 10th century the Vikings in Ireland had adopted Christianity, and with the fusion of cultures it is often difficult to distinguish between Viking and Irish artefacts at this time. Traditionally seen as raiders and invaders, Vikings also helped transform Ireland economically, culturally and politically.

Viking jewelry was worn by both men and women alike. The purpose of the jewelry was not just for decoration but also to display their spiritual beliefs and social status.
