10th century Jelling style Type II-4 sword scabbard chape identical to the chape excavated from a burnt ( circa 983-1038 ) fortress near Franopol Belarus, and also an artfact of grave 174 from Kaup-Wiskiauten.


Yaroslav’s exploits of 1038 *
( excerpt from the quasi-historical Russian Primary Chronicle )
Yaroslav

Въ лѣт̑ . ҂s҃ . . ф҃ . м҃s . [6546 (1038)] Иде Ӕрославъ  на Ӕтвѧгы  

The Y type Ulfberht sword found 5.5 km SE from Old Grodno

 

В лѣт̑ . ҂s҃ . . ф҃ . . м҃з . [6547 (1039)] Свщ҃на быс̑ цр҃кви ст҃ыӕ Бц҃а . юже созда Володимеръ ѡц҃ь Ӕрославль . митрополитомъ Феѡпеньтомь

 

В лѣт̑ . ҂s҃ . . ф҃ . . м҃и . [6548 (1040)] Ӕрославъ иде на Литву  

 

 

The Vawkavysk area "LOKI BOUND" pendant, with Gotland influence, identical to one labeled K-46, found with other Viking artfacts in the Rivne region of the Ukraine. The Gnezdovo & Härad Sweden "mask" pendants resemble the Snaptun Stone of Loki. The LOKI bound pendant is also refered to as "the gripping beast".

* The esteemed scholar Mykhailo Hrushevskyi was very skeptical about this information,
citing records from other chronicles that indicate the 1038 campaign took place in the winter
- and had no success. Another source recounts a quite different scenario
for a 1038 battle with Yotvingians - near Vaukavysk.
