…The bird brooches have been interpreted as ravens, with connotations to Odin’s ravens, Huginn and Muninn.  They could also be understood as representations of birds of prey.  Within the field of archaeology dealing with the finds in question there is caution about attributing the pictorial images to any species.  The question is whether it at all is possible to find out if they represent ravens or birds of prey, or something else?
