Bells from Birka. These were mostly found in children's graves. The author suggests that these were probably not part of the clothing, but rather served as parts of pacifying toys ("Kinderklapper") or as amulets, with perhaps an additional function of allowing parents to hear where the child was. (Article on "Schellen" by Anne Sofie Gräslund, from Birka II, part I, ed. Greta Arwidsson)
