Our viking jewelry collection is inspired by the archaeological finds at Wood Quay, the location of an early Viking settlement in Dublin, Ireland. The viking invasions of Ireland commenced early in 795BC, with a raid on Lambay Island. The raiders obviously liked what the saw, as they continued to arrive in numbers for two centuries. Regular battles with Irish chieftains followed, culminating in the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. However, when all was said and done, many Viking clans stayed in Ireland, inter-marrying with the local population, and founding the Irish cities of Dublin, Waterford, Wexford, Cork & Limerick.
