The Pagan Lady

These two images were taken recently in the Manx Museum Viking Gallery.

Excavations in Peel Castle in 1982/87 revealed an extensive graveyard. The most spectacular finds were the 10th century grave of “The Pagan Lady” which included a fine example of a Viking necklace of which there is 71 differently coloured beads.

The replicate of the original beads can be seen on the Pagan Lady in both of my images.
