Long Description:
Arkæologiske fund har vist at Ribe, Danmarks ældste by, var et handelscentrum og udgangspunkt for vikingetogter.
Også i dag er der vikinger i Ribe, dog som et Vikingemuseum og oplevelsescenter.
På museet kan man købe kopier af vikingesmykker blandt andet armringe. De er typisk i et snoet mønster og med et dyrehoved i hver ende.
Denne dørhammer i Ribe er speciel ved at den ligner en vikingearmring. Selve ringen er snoet og hovedet af et dyr i hver ende, måske et får eller en hund. Det er lidt svært at se. Dørhammeren er udført i jern og 8-10 cm i diameter.
Den er placeret på døren på en privat bolig i en af Ribes små gader, Grønnegade, og perfekt i en by med så meget vikingehistorie.


Archaeological finds have shown that Ribe, Denmark's oldest city, was a trading center and starting point for Viking expeditions.
Even today, there are Vikings in Ribe, however, as a Viking museum and experience center.
At the museum you can buy copies of Viking jewelery, including bracelets. They are typically in a twisted pattern and with an animal head at each end.
This door knocker in Ribe is special in that it looks like a Viking bracelet. The ring itself is twisted and the head of an animal at each end, perhaps a sheep or a dog. It's a little hard to see. The door knocker is made of iron and 8-10 cm in diameter.
It is located on the door of a private residence in one of Ribe's small streets, Grønnegade, and perfect in a town with so much Viking history.
Functional door?: yes
