Archaeologists have discovered bronze Viking weather vanes from the 9th century. They have an unusual quadrant shape, usually surmounted by an animal or creature from Norse fable. They were commonly used on Viking ships, and were also popular on Scandinavian churches. These weather vanes can be seen even today in Sweden and Norway.
