There’s a new TV-show from HBO waiting to hit the shores of Normandy, Scotland, England, Ireland Russia, Spain, America etc etc… Beware the Vikings are at it again! HBO presents Vikings! I guess this won’t really have to much with archaeology or historic correctness but who cares this is just for fun – and I still haven’t seen any horns on the helms 🙂
As I check my back-log I see that I need to blog more about archaeology, but it seems that time just haven’t been there. During the coming weekend there will be time for archaeology though as it is time for the 5th annual archaeological seminar in Blankaholm – much thanks to Michael Dahlin.
The schedule holds 14 interesting seminars and it’s always fun to meet other archaeologists and archeo-buffs.
- Michael Dahlin – On rhombic axes, from the late Bronze Age and their contexts in Kalmar County.
- Gustaf Wollentz – On the future within the cultural heritage sector
- Emelie Svenman – Beyond the grave – a georapahic analysis of the Bronze Age in Tjust
