The drinking Viking horn is what it sounds like: antlers used as a container for liquids. Horns have been known since Classical Antiquity, particularly in the Balkans, and remained in use for ceremonial purposes throughout the Middle Ages and early modernity in Germanic Europe. The horns are now used for toast on special occasions in countries like Georgia.

Some remarkable examples of the horns of Europe in the Middle Ages were made with the horns of bison or the European uro (a species of bull that died out in the 17th century). Most horns from the Viking Age were domesticated, smaller cattle. The large uro horns found in the tomb of Sutton Hoo (Suffolk, east coast of England) are an exception.

Viking Horn for Trational Drink

Many elaborate horns were found to drink from the graves of pagan Germanic tribes. The finds span a millennium, from the Germanic Iron Age to the Viking Age.

We barely had horns from the Viking Age. Cattle and goats were everyday objects that were susceptible to deterioration. The decorative metal pieces and horn frames recovered from the deposits testify to their very extensive use, despite the fact that preserved natural horns are rare.

Most of the preserved Norwegian horns, dated to the Middle Ages, have an ornate metal structure, although the horns are smooth and unadorned. There are also horns with inlays in the same horns, although from a later period; its simplicity attests that it is a popular craft.

The hero Beowulf drank mead from carved horns and is also used to drink in the 1000 AD epic poem Gudrunarkvida II.
