Children of Ash is an ongoing research project devoted to Viking ornamental art. 

Our focus is on the ornamental tradition of Late Iron Age Scandinavia, expressed as a proper language, with its ‘vocabulary’, ‘grammar’, ‘syntax’ and ‘dialects’, throughout its development.

To achieve that, the original works found through archaeology are studied and ‘digested’ to extract their canons and underlying principles, which we will present to you in comprehensive visual breakdowns as well as detailed background information.

A true glimpse into the Viking mind.
