Only the richest Vikings and Saxons could afford to drink from a glass vessel or eat off metal plates and goblets.
Poor Vikings had to make do with a wooden bowl or pottery cup.

Spices would liven up bland food and every Viking would carry his own water bottle made from leather. It does not leak because it is double-stiched and lined with beeswax.

Also shown is a sword frog to hold a Viking sword on a belt and a leather message holder.  The message would not be written on paper  because paper had not been invented.  The leather holder contained a piece of real vellum made from animal skin.

And of course there is a rat……..
