A classic, ornate and highly intricate amulet of power and protection, fit for a high ranking Saxon or Viking leader/warlord. The head of a Celtic dragon has been sculpted to bite the chain that it hangs from. Celtic knot-work embellishes this hammer and is set with a highly-prised, polished translucent, genuine amber gemstone (Allowing natural flaws to be seen against the light).
The runes on the back of this pendant read THONAR, which translates as THUNDER in the 'Old Saxon' language written in 'Eldar Futhark' runes. This language and rune-form dates to the eighth century ( 700 AD ) and was used by the germanic Saxon people who had colonised (or conquered) most of England at that time.
