Here is my collection of various bronze Viking artifacts, cleaned with my ultrasonic cleaner.

I think this post should be in 'Other Hobbies and Interests'.

I personally would be very wary of using an ultrasonic cleaner on any find. A rinse or short soak in de-ionised water and a very gentle brush at the most. I have seen gilding lifted from a find by ultrasonics.

Otherwise you have an interesting selection of items.

I know what you mean regarding the cleaner, these items had 20 second burst to remove the crud.
