The oval tine box (dark blue) is not viking, I've been told these kind of tines are 18th century and up. in the Oseberg ship however, there has been found a round box ( build up from slats like a bucket) with a lid that closes in the same way as tines do. There have been found at least three bentwood boxes, round with and without lids and one of them has a scratched decoration on the lid and body. this foto: i191 Haithabu WHH 23-04-2011 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
