As Ancient As History Itself
Viking mugs are known to have been used in many cultures and are estimated to be around 2600 years old. They were originally created for drinking purposes only, but over time they started to be used for several other activities, mostly related to ceremonies and rituals. A few cultures in whose history the mention of Drinking Horn Mugs were found were ancient Greece, ancient Rome and even Celtic culture. And yes, these mugs were used by everyone back in those days. So, why do we love to associate them with only Vikings? Well, you guessed it right! Vikings are a cool thing.
Never Let Anything Go to Waste
This is related to how the drinking horn mugs were made back then. Unlike today, people back then took nature seriously and didn’t like to put anything to waste. So, when they hunted, they ate what they could, and the rest of it… well, they put it to different uses. So, as its name suggests, people started to create these sexy mugs out of the horns of the hunted animals without having the slightest idea of the favor they were doing to us. This is what happens when you really strive hard to get the food you eat… you can’t throw away anything. Today’s drinking horn mugs are obviously not created out of hunted animal horns, obviously. But we like to feel the swag of the old times anyways.
