Video (short version in english, 4:23 min) showing the process of recreating the broadaxe from Langeid. More video from the project. Video: Mårten Teigen and Kirsten Helgeland, KHM/UiO.
The precious metal decoration on the hilt of the Langeid sword was obscured by a crust of iron corrosion. This cover was carefully removed by micro-chiselling under a stereo microscope. The following video (5:38 min) portrays the process, partially as a time-lapse. Video: Vegard Vike, KHM/UiO.
