The use of the Valknut symbol goes back at smallest amount as far as Viking Age that spanned the eight and eleventh centuries. Glumly its ancient times meaning is ghostly and even its unique names is lost to us. The alias "Valknut" is a modern name strongly translated as "the huddle against of the dead" or "the huddle against of the slain". The symbol has been properly claimed by modern Norse and Astru pagans with heaps a few choice meanings tied to it usually focusing on death but with others as well. Organize are even some who right mind which symbols are true Valknuts and which are not, depending on their ancient times age. The image on the vanished is from the Stora Hammar Granite which is a Viking Age standing stone in Sweden. It includes a view of a ritual sacrifice with the Valknut appearing expert the altar.
