There In recent years, mass culture has started to focus of the Slavs. The growing importance of re-enactment for the history and archeology also played a role in this. Increased contact between East and West of Europe in various academic fields, including historical sciences, has given us a better understanding of this era.

This volume is based on three pillars - photos, new publications and the Internet. The author has constructed Volume III of the Viking and Slavic Ornamental Design with a new set of 266 or so ancient designs. The first group in the collection includes beautifully decorated wooden Viking objects.  Many of these come from the Irish capital and the local ornamental style. The second group includes items from the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History in Oslo. Thematically, and you will find a large amount of ornamentation in the Borre style. This time, there is new material from the tombs in Mammen, the embroidered and woven patterns from Oseberg and the embroidery of Russia. Piquant, two very well-known weather vanes provided a certain amount of ornaments.

As always, this is present in two-dimensional graphics in black and white, allowing the broadest possibilities. The logic of the system has not changed, focusing on the concept of the style, dating or borne symbolism.
