The attire and accoutrements of an Iron Age warrior from continental Germania 3rd - 1st c. AD Iron was 'scarce' in Germania according to Tacitus, and thus the peasant levy fought with cudgels, rocks, spears, and axes. The warrior depicted has a sword and thus would be equivalent to the knightly class that evolved later. By the time of the Frankish kingdoms (5th c. on), the Germanic regions possibly had the greatest iron/steel output in the world at that time.

Haithabu (Hedeby) viking village/town. It was, together with Birka, one of the most important market and trading places on the baltic sea. It must have been awesome seeing people from Arabia and eastern Europe, trading with people from Iceland and Ireland. Haithabu was as cosmopolitan, as modern day London!
