Mjölnir (English: Crusher), is the hammer of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder. An amulet depicting Mjölnir is known as a “Thor’s Hammer” and it was worn by the Vikings as an amulet of protection and power. Ægishjálmur (old norse: helm of awe/helm of terror) is mentioned in the old sagas, such as in the Völsunga Saga, where the dragon Fafnir wears one between his eyes. Scenes from the Völsunga Saga are depicted on a rune stone in Uppland Sweden that is dated to around the year 1000.
