Drinking horns have been used throughout history in all types of ceremonies from weddings to burials. Like the English, the Norse folk made extensive use of drinking horns. Most would have been from domestic cattle and would have had a capacity of a pint or so. One of the symbols of the god Odin is three interlocked drinking horns. This reflects the gods quest for magical mead brewed from the blood of the wise Kvasir and the source of poetic inspiration. Today they are still used in ceremonies such as weddings.
