Uchtred or Uhtred, called the bold (died 1016), was the Ealdorman of all Northumbria from 1006 to 1016, when he was assassinated. He was the son of Waltheof 1, Ealdorman of Bamburgh, whose ancient family had ruled from the castle of Bamburgh on the Northumbrian coast.

Uhtred is also more commonly known now as the main character of the popular TV series 'The Last Kingdom'.

All our horn products are completely handmade in our Yorkshire based workshop so please be aware there is a production time of around 2-3 weeks once the order has been placed .

All our horn products are handmade in our Yorkshire based workshop. All horns arrive in their completely natural state, we then sand, polish and line the inside of each individual piece. All designs are drawn on and carved entirely by hand.

The inside of the horn mug has been extensively cleaned and then lined using a food grade beeswax. We try to keep everything as authentic and organic as possible, which is why we opt for a deodorized beeswax lining rather than a polyurethane one. Because we use a natural wax, the horn isn't suitable for hot drinks. All drinking horns and mugs come with a set of care instructions.

These horn mugs are made to order, so may differ from the product pictures. If you have a preferred colour horn, please leave a message with your order and we will do everything we can to accommodate.
