Cool connection to the past

I know tablet weaving is old, but it was still very cool to see a fragment of a tablet from the Viking period in the Orkneys. It’s made of bone and, though broken, still quite lovely!

From the Brough of Birsay this is on show in the Kirkwall Museum along with spinning whorls and other gear
