Hail All-father, Wise Warrior, One-eyed wanderer, Come sit at my fire. Tell me of your wisdom stories, The scenes your missing eye sees. You who chooses the slain, Look on my deeds and when my time comes To run the sky with you, Let my end be worthy of song. In the meantime, let me feel Excitement and poetry and fury and joy, Let me understand sacrifice, Think long, Remember well, And Journey Far. Odin, Witness this.

In 1991 a Viking boat burial was excavated on the beach at Scar on the island of Sanday. It has been dated to between 875 and 950 AD. Among the finds were human remains, grave good including a quiver with eight arrows, bone combs, gaming pieces, two spindle whorls and a whalebone plaque featuring two dragon heads known as the Scar Dragon Plaque.
