About the Snartemo II find

The Snartemo II animal band is a 5,8 cm wide and 12 cm long piece of tablet woven band, found in the Snartemo II grave (Snartemo, Agder, Norway, 500-550 AD). The find is stored in Museum of Cultural History (Historisk museum) in Oslo, Norway. The tablet woven band came from the farm Snartemo which lays in the municipality Hægebostad, in the far south of Norway. It is a part of the larger region of Lister, Agder county, which in turn is famous for many rich finds from the Migration Period (375-550 AD).
