Finding Poetry in the Ground— a Kenning of Silver from Neble, Zealand

Peter Pentz
2021 Danish Journal of Archaeology  
Abstract: A circular pendant found near Neble, Zealand is interpreted as a double-sided amulet, decorated respectively on one side as a shield and as a wheel on the reverse. This dual iconography is suggested as a material reference to the kenning shield-wheel, known from Snorri Sturluson´s Skáldskaparmál.
