Noble Friends, Especially Vikings,

Yesterday the BBC offered an "update" (or sorts) on the Gjellestad Viking
ship burial excavation. So far, nothing new since the last time I reported
on the burial.

That said, the BBC managed to stretch non-news out to a fairly long story
about Viking ship burials in general, spiced with some facts about Viking
longships (including a cool photo of a modern replica and a shot of the
preserved Oseberg ship). The story is worth a read:

Yours Aye,
