Nowhere there are proofs that Vikings had chain mail... The leather was the most used protecting clothes. These people are juste copy something they do not know.

"The mail shirt was found in Gjermundbu, Norway, and now resides at the Universitets Oldsaksamling in Oslo, Norway, Reference No C273171."

this would be proof enough - seriously, when you have no idea what you are talking about, why post?

boink,
i guess if you would be in a real fight with swords, you would look silly (and a little gay) as well, but you would be too busy trying to stay alive to mind such details. Or sticking to hollywood images - you would die a quick death trying to look cool. 03

Historical accuracy is way better than Hollywood, since effectiveness is more important than the looks. 03

wilkin,


No sorry It's not a proof at all...

I expressed myself badly, so they "probably" used it, but later and only the elite, it was rare, expensive and very long to make (until 11 month to make one...). It's like horned helmets it's just bullshit. We found a lot of roman and Carolingian armor but very very few chainmail explain why please?
Just take a moment to think about that : On a Knorr (longship) wear metal that could rust with seawater seems to be a great idea. lol...
Ho and your article talking about only one shirt found ... Who said it was not stolen, or buy for this man? And you think it's a full truth about history on only one artefact found. Please... If you want real references, read books rather than trust anything you see on the net ...And sorry for my english I'm Norman ;) .

Same link as your, just read...

"The Gjermundbu Mail (figure 1.) is the only Viking Age mail shirt to be found in Scandinavia ( :05: ). There are other finds of mail but they are small, or date from the earlier Vendal period or can not be dated for certain. The mail shirt was a part of a rich male cremation grave which also contained the only Viking Age 'spectacle helm' to be found in Scandinavia (figure 2.), along with; weapons, riding gear, cooking implements and other artefacts dating from the 10th century. The mail shirt was found in Gjermundbu, Norway, and now resides at the Universitets Oldsaksamling in Oslo, Norway, Reference No C273171."
