While it has been proven that horns weren’t a component of Viking helmets, they were indeed prominent in Viking culture. In a tradition dating back over 2,000 years, Viking drinking horns have stood the test of time. Used for ceremonial, ritual, and every day use, the Norse people filled them with water, milk, mead, and other liquids. As it was believed to be displeasing to the gods of nature to waste any part of a slaughtered animal, these chalices were originally made from real animal horns. They often contained inscriptions featuring family names and were passed down through the generations. In mythology, drinking horns were also known as a symbol of prestige for the gods of revelry. Though these drinking vessels harken back to ancient times, you don’t have to be a member of an ancient civilization to get your hands on one of your own. With Armor Venue’s line of Viking drinking horns, you can keep the Scandinavian spirit alive and drink to your heart’s content.
