Archaeologists have uncovered countless examples of ear spoons from ancient cultures in the Bronze, Iron, and Medieval Ages. This useful and artistic tool was one of the most coveted items of the ancient Scandinavians. Viking men and women needed a way to keep themselves clean, and what better way than hygiene implements that were also fashionable?
Made of bronze, silver, and even gold, ear spoons were often kept on a person’s belt or hanging from a brooch. They were a decorative way to show that you valued your cleanliness. One of the most famous ear spoons from Birka is decorated with a Valkyrie, implying the seriousness of this item as part of a Viking’s wardrobe.
