The use of solar amulets during the Viking Age (c. 800-1100 CE) is not well-documented, as the Vikings did not leave extensive written records of their beliefs and practices. However, we do have some evidence that suggests that the sun was an important symbol in Viking culture and that amulets and talismans featuring sun symbols may have been worn for spiritual or protective purposes.
One of the most famous examples of a sun symbol in Viking art is the "Sunstone," a circular crystal found in a Viking-era shipwreck off the coast of Norway. This crystal is believed to have been used as a navigational aid, as it could be used to locate the position of the sun even in cloudy or overcast weather. The fact that the Vikings relied on the sun for navigation suggests that it held a significant place in their worldview.
Other sun symbols that appear in Viking art include the "solar wheel," a symbol of the sun's journey across the sky, and the "solar cross," which features a circle or disk at the center of a cross. These symbols are found on various artifacts, including jewelry, weapons, and runestones.
It is possible that some of these solar symbols were worn as amulets or talismans for protective or spiritual purposes.__________________________________
