  1. Good Morning Mel. Fascinating stuff. I enjoyed the piece about the Viking sword. Since the Varangian Guard ( an elite unit of Vikings) were in service to the Byzantine Emperors from about AD874, I wonder if that’s where they leaned the craft and took it home with them? I’m sure the Byzantin Empire would have those skills available to them.
