Re: leather armour for poorer Vikes/Saxons

Folks, ? Most "experts" say " none have been found" but that's not surprising is it. ! Don't understand what you mean by this. There has been an incredible amount of leather finds from the Anglo Scandanavian period, including possible workshops eg http://www.amazon.co.uk/Leather...

Try here and click on Anglo-Scandinavian and Roman remains at 28–29 High Ousegate, York, UK. It might work.

But if its an ancient monument as soon as you lift the turf you have committed an offence, as well as then exposing any underlying remains/contexts to damage. I know that not all sites fall into this category but certainly with places such as Hastings and Kelmarsh, possibly some of the battlefield s...

The reason may well have to do with the status of the land on which the events are held, for example the parkland around Kelmarsh is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, so any disturbance of the ground without SAM permission is an offence. Burning can cuase problems for further investigation, as well as d...

Was there not a study a while back that looked into US marines in combat that found that a very low number of them actually shot to kill? Probably less advisable when your opponent is in your face with a spear/sword/axe rather than a few hundred yards away with his eyes shut. Read 'The Wanderer'. I...
