Once again, a single fragmented but probably entire mail shirt has been discovered in Scandinavia, this time near Gjermundbu in Haugsbygd, the same location as the helmet. In contrast to earlier massive armour burials in Sweden Valsgärde or probably only a limited number of Vikings could afford it, Scandinavian Viking Age burial practices do not appear to favor burial with helmet or mail armour. A mail shirt, which was most likely worn over heavy clothes, defended the wearer from being cut, but it provided little protection from blunt damage or stabbing strikes from a sharp weapon such as a spear.


Chainmail armour was difficult to obtain since it required thousands of interconnected iron rings, each of which had to be manually riveted together by hand.

As a result, mail in early medieval Europe was extremely expensive, and it was only worn by men of importance and fortune.


Several partial suits of mail were found on the Hjortspring boat.


Viking mail was probably of the "four-on-one" variety, in which a single riveted ring connects four solid (punched or riveted) rings. Byrnie (Old Norse brynja) is the name for this form of chainmail. Given the paucity of archeological evidence for Viking armor and the fact that raiding Vikings tended to avoid pitched battles, it's possible that mail was worn primarily by professional warriors and wealthy nobles, such as the Great Heathen Army of the mid-9th century in England or Harald Hardrada's invasion of Northumbria at the Battle of Fulford in 1066.
