    As an archaeologist, my primary interest is in the Vikings, though it's been a while since last I excavated a Viking period site. I am published as a specialist in Norse period ceramics from the Outer Hebrides. I have excavated Norse period buildings within a settlement on the Island of South Uist and also at a site on Angelsey. I found a small piece of bone with 5 letters of Viking period Ogham writing carved on it and it is only the 6th such object to have ever been found and is the earliest evidence for writing from the Outer Hebrides.
    Hi Jerry !
    Any clue on the date of these items ?

    Seeing relics like norsk41elv posted really makes one feel odd, knowing that someone, hundreds of years ago, held those weapons in their hands in a battle or during a hunting trip. Brings the history real close.

    I love history, seriously.

    Sorry , I made a mistake! I tought the treath was Dave's (sandgroper); concerning VOC ship wreck's.
    So never mind the "back on track" remark I made..."history intrest in general"; it is! ;-)

    My favorite areas are: History of Finland, Estonia and Eastern Slavic countries (Russia, Ukraine and Belarus). I also like Viking history, since I am Norwegian from my grandmothers side. Her family immigrated from Norway during the 19th century I believe.

    Anything historical, ... so long that there is a proper basis to be investigated and unraveled.

    I collect, therefore I am.

    I discovered an ancient Aboriginal site over 15,000yrs old | marcrussoamazingadventures

    Since the descovery i have a keen intrest in Aboriginal history, dreamtime storys and culture. I have alot of respect to our traditional owners as much as a bad reputation they have down here . I know many really nice Aboriginal people and we all down here can learn alot from what they know aspecially about the medicines found out bush and how to care for our environment as they took only what you need . Look after country and coutry look after you.
