Product Description

RARE FINDS
One of a kind, vintage and antique pieces of Celtic Heritage and Historical content. Special items that are unique and possibly not to be found elsewhere.
St.JUSTIN
Situated in Cornwall, St.Justin was established in 1984 inspired by Cornish Celtic history and heritage. Pewter was used to make brooches and pendants because of the strong local connection with tin mining, a centuries old industry.
LEGEND - VIKING
Ravens - Huginn & Munnin
    Norse Mythology from Northern Europe in particular Scandinavia and Iceland is rich with many Gods and heros.  The stories or Sagas were handed down by mouth and in Medieval times written down. Ravens were an important part of Viking life, as carrion feeders ravens would show were an animal had died or follow hunters to pick over carcasses.
The two ravens Huginn and Munnin ( (Huginn meaning “thought” and Muninn meaning “desire or mind”) fly all over the world, named Midgard, each day and bring information to the god Odin. They are often depicted on Odin's shoulders speaking directly into his ears.  Odin ( Wodan in Old English) rules over his kingdom Asgard.  He is a complex god being a warrior, poet and magician.
