Bronze shield amulet based on an authentic find. It is described in the ancient texts that Valhalla has spear-shafts for rafters, coats of mail strewn over its benches, with a wolf hanging in front of its west doors, and an eagle hovering above it. The roof of the majestic, enormous hall is thatched with shields.
In Norse mythology, Valhalla (from Old Norse Valhall "hall of the slain") is an enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Those who die in battle may be chosen by Odin to travel to Valhalla.
