“It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope.
Which then turned into a quiet thought,
Which then turned into a quiet word.

And then that word grew louder and louder
‘Til it was a battle cry!
I’ll come back,
When you call me
No need to say goodbye.” -The Call by Regina Spektor

And so winter has come to an end. Well, at least in the south of Norway. In the North it will be going strong for another month or so, but since the snow is melting away where I am, I decided it was time to bring some green back to my instagram!

I need to draw more fanart, or else what’s the point of reading/watching all these amazing things if you don’t put the inspiration to use?
Also, need to reread LotR!

Why did Vikings have ‘Allah’ embroidered into funeral clothes?

archaeologicalnews:

Researchers in Sweden have found Arabic characters woven into burial costumes from Viking boat graves. The discovery raises new questions about the influence of Islam in Scandinavia, writes journalist Tharik Hussain.

They were kept in storage for more than 100 years, dismissed as typical examples of Viking Age funeral clothes.

But a new investigation into the garments – found in 9th and 10th Century graves – has thrown up groundbreaking insights into contact between the Viking and Muslim worlds.

Patterns woven with silk and silver thread have been found to spell the words “Allah” and “Ali”.

The breakthrough was made by textile archaeologist Annika Larsson of Uppsala University while re-examining the remnants of burial costumes from male and female boat and chamber graves originally excavated in Birka and Gamla Uppsala in Sweden in the late 19th and mid-20th centuries. Read more.
