Viking armor was designed to protect the wearer from a variety of weapons, including clubs, swords, and axes.

The most common type of armor was a shirt of mail, which consisted of interlocking metal rings or a lighter material like linen or wool. This base material was usually supplemented with a leather or metal breastplate, which provided additional protection to the chest and abdomen.

In some cases, Viking warriors also wore metal shoulder guards, shin guards, and helmets. The Norse god Odin was said to have created the first piece of armor, and it is thought that the Vikings modeled their own armor after his.
