The Viksø helmets inner beauty…

This picture shows the inside of one of the Viksø helmets horn ends. Clearly, one can see brownisch organic material in spirals embedded in black organic material.

In 2019 this black material was used to scientifically date the helmets. In 2023 the beauty within the interplay between these different materials was also seen by the panel of the The DNRF Photo Competition 2023. This beautiful picture is within the 10 selected photos of the competition, a great honour. And, it symbolises a new area of archaeological science, how exciting.
