Lot 0044
Ancient Viking Sorcerer's Amulet 9th-10th Century

Silvered bronze. Just under 1” height. Shaped as a duck’s foot. A burial at Viden Denmark contained the body of a woman of wealth and status buried with henbane seeds, which have hallucinogenic properties and a wand as well as other objects. From these, it was concluded that she was a seeress or sorceress. The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck’s feet pendants very similar to this.
