"Back of a Karelian brooch - you can see the way the pin is attached in these brooches differs to Norse examples. The Norse needed a narrower lug, so the linen apron dress loops could fit around it, while a wider lug here allows for the brooch to sit flat when fastening a peplos-type garment."

The Hakkapeliitta were Finnish light cavalrymen in the service of King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden during the Thirty Years' War in the 1600s. They were known to be mobile and efficient in battle and they excelled in sudden attacks, raiding and charging.

A better view of the Perniö reconstruction. It's my favorite Finnish reconstruction by far, so I was rather disappointed to hear that many of the pretty details have no basis in actual archaeological findings. The gold bronze-spiral flowers on the mantle, at least, are real, so at least I have that.

The Suontaka Sword (Finnish: Suontaan miekka) was found in 1968 from a grave along with a body of a woman in Suontaka village of Häme, Finland. The grave dates to approximately 1030 AD but the sword was probably forged earlier in the 10th century. The sword is unique - a matching one has not been found anywhere in the world.
