Nordic Trader was created by Alan Andrist and Patricia Reed. We focus on Scandinavian historical jewelry creating documented museum quality reproductions and less documented items of daily life. The travels of Scandinavian merchants and travelers ranged from Iceland to Northern Europe to Constantinople, the Mediterranean, Black Sea, North Africa and as far east as Iran.
Our research has allowed us to visit the major Viking collections Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Ireland and northern England. Time was found for side trips to out of the way archaeological research centers, smaller museums with significant collections of Viking Age artifacts and were at the launch of the 109′ Viking Longship Havhingsten at the Viking Ship Museum in Denmark. We tried apply our experience and insight to creating and selecting items for Nordic Trader. We are always open to suggestions, ideas and discussion of our products and new archaeological discoveries.
