Viking Age (800-1050 AD).
The tiny figure holding spears and a sword and wearing a helmet with horns, may be connected with Odin. Horned helmets had been worn sometimes for ceremonial and magical purposes in earlier times, but Vikings never wore horned helmets. Odin was the wisest of the Norse gods. He knew all the secret powers of nature and could hear the grass grow. He created the world, set the stars in their courses and lit the earth with the sun. In the old English language, Odin was known as Woden; a day of our week, Wednesday, is named for him.
