Yes I'm borrowing them from my son-in-law piecemeal, but not in any order. Just finished Young Bloods, and then he loaned me The Generals! Bah! :lol:

Ah! The longbow versus the crossbow.:): Good reading for the likes of myself who did virtually no history reading at school at all. I think I got my S-in-L interested firstly with Under The Eagle, which we gave him as a pressie.:):

I saw a really Crap Film called Beowulf ( in 3D actually ) a while back, in the Cinema starring Ray Winstone, which was quite gory and sort of " Pagan ".......

Is this the same " Folklore / Myth " story you are talking about here !!!!........:):)

Could be based on similar? I loved the Smithy twisting the three rods and hammer welding them together using the forge and anvil. Fascinating that metalwork, and that beautifully crafted helmet.:):

Yes that twisting method left a unique marking
on each blade. :cool:

The helmet is probably the most famous archaeological
find from mainland Britain. (Sutton Hoo)
