Mammen style artwork depicting a serpent by one-rook.
The Mammen style is a type of Scandinavian animal art found from the late 10th Century to the early 11th Century named after finds from the chamber tomb at Mammen in Jutland, Denmark
Eastern style axe-head, Russia.
It was found in Russia’s Kazan region on the Volga river, but is decorated in a Scandinavian style with gold inlay that depicts a sword piercing a serpent from below – possibly a reference to the legend of Sigurd the dragon-slayer.

Bangour Village Hospital, West Lothian - 30/03/14
Went to explore this gigantic abandoned psychiatric hospital and arrived to find the atmosphere had been set perfectly with fog. Here are some full building shots.
Bangour Village Hospital was a complex so big that it was literally its own village. It opened in 1904 and was 100 years old when it closed. At its height, it housed over 3000 patients and had its own farm, shop, school, bakery and church.
