First “runic” Thor’s Hammer ever, seems to have been recently found in Købelev in Lolland/Denmark. The writing consists of seven runes, and says ”Hmar x is” which means “This is a Hammer” - where “x”  simply is a sort of space character (other usual ones are ” + ” and ” : “).  The Hammer dates to the 10th Century, and of the about 1000 Thor’s Hammers that have been found, this is the only one with any sort of (at least preserved) writing on it.

Loki stone, Kirkby Stephen church by abridgeover.  The 8th century Loki Stone is small and is decorated by a carved figure, chained, with horns. It is one of the few physical survivals from the time when the Vikings had settled in this area.  It's thought to be part of a larger cross.
