The Norse and the Islamic World: How Unique is this Ring?

There’s been a lot of hype in the last week about a ring worn by a 9th century Viking woman that says, “for Allah” on the glass inlay. Nearly every article discussing the ring says that it confirms contact between Vikings and the Islamic world, because it…

Introduction
Rantin' and Rovin' is a travel blog dedicated to understanding peoples and cultures across the globe. As an anthropologist, I am interested in learning who people are, what they do, and why they do what they do. In the end, my goal is to show that while we all have our differences, we are all human.

And, of course, to have some fun along the way!
