The Gjermundbu helmet is a Viking Age helmet. The helmet was first discovered by accident during 1943 at the Gjermundbu farm near Haugsbygd in the municipality of Ringerike in Buskerud, Norway. During the Viking age, helmets were typically fairly simple: a bowl with a prominent nose guard, Yet the Gjermundbu helmet has clear evidence of battle damage (a sword blow and an arrow puncture), suggesting it was used in earnest fights.
According to the Voluspa, Nidhogg is a dragon that lives under the roots of Yggdrasil and eats the corpses of the dead. The roots of Yggdrasil lie in Niflheim, the world of the dead. Nidhogg has commonly been presented in modern fiction as a servant of Hel (the goddess of the underworld). While a generally dark figure, Nidhogg remains relatively harmless (or at least stationary) until Ragnarok begins, the final battle. Nidhogg can represent endings and change, hope and new beginnings.
