This 10th – 11th century silver amulet is something of an enigma. It was discovered at Foss, Iceland, and is often referred to as the Wolf Cross (vargkors).

Its shape can either be seen as a Thor’s Hammer, or as a Christian Cross.

If it is to be seen as a cross, is the wolf’s head seen to be Fenrir, with Christianity triumphing over paganism?
