      I can't speak specifically to viking use of side quivers, but I did find this painting, by Carpaccio, done in the later 1500's, that shows the archer with a hip quiver. I used this as a guide to make a similar one for my son. He likes it.

      Draw your attention to the lower center of the photo...

      **It certainly does seem a matter of preference at least in the Viking
      Age. There have been some who think the side quiver is easier to
      access in warfare, but that is all hearsay!

      To my knowledge--and I'd love to be corrected!--there are no period
      quivers that exist --(etc.)**
      Good luck!
