Gold bracteates

Bracteates are only about 2-4 cm across, and they date from 400-650 AD.
The photos are much bigger.

As you chose one of the bracteates to the left, it will show in this frame instead.

I will add links on bracteates later on, but for a start
the one on Arild Hauges rune pages will have to do.
It's not in English, but give it a try nevertheless.
You'll find links to many pictures of bracteates there.

I just found another interesting link, and it's in English.

There are also many gold bracteates that don't contain any runes at all.
These ones are at display at the Historical museum in Oslo, Norway,
and these ones are at display in Nationalmuseet in Copenhagen, Denmark.
