1800 eds: The Sami were detached from their history
As with the Torsviggar axes it is possible that the flint spearheads found in the nature were attributed magical powers. Oscar Montelius (1872) writes: ”While the Stone axes have been perceived as “åskviggar” / thorsviggar, the flint arrows has partly been seen as the weapons that the Thunder God hit down with lighting”. In northern and central Sweden several stone axes and chisels are found that resembled and by some were named “flintviggar” [Hildebrand (1870-73)]. However in the 1800eds a tradition developed within Swedish and Nordic archaeology and history with separate interpretation-systems of the Sami and the non-Sami. Archaeological findings of stone axes in the areas traditionally settled by the Sami in the 1800eds were not defined as related to the God Thor, and the Sami were detached from the general Nordic history by the academic establishment. In the text by Hildebrand and Hildebrand it is commented that the flintviggar from the northern areas of Sweden do not seem to have been properly preserved. There are several examples of such findings mentioned in the book by Hildebrand (1870-73) on pages 182 – 184. It is important to remind that the Sami from the earliest times have settled the southern areas of Sweden as well as southern Norway and Finland, but this fact has been uncared for.
On a Sami shaman drum described by Friis (1871, page 33) there is a boar or pig for offering (number 38). På en runebomme som er beskrevet av Friis (1871, side 33) er det avbildet et offersvin som nummer 38: Lappisk mythologi, eventyr og folkesagn.
