      What have I gotten myself into??? I'll be stepping up as MOAS in May, and
      in October, Bright Hills will be holding its traditional TnT - this year's
      theme is Viking/Beowulf.

      Viking is Not My Period (tm) and so I turn to you folks. Can you recommend
      some Viking period arts or point me toward some resources? I've already
      googled and found not a lot.

      Thanks!

          There is also an excellent Viking mailing list. They recently moved
          to a new group, but most of the files are at the old one, I'd
          recommend subscribing to to both. This is also an excellent place to
          ask specific questions.

                        Well, the IKEA toybox isn't really much like Viking woodworking at all.
                        Wooden boxes from the Viking era are much more about interesting
                        angles than the plain old right-angle six-panel boxes that start
                        appearing later on.

                        But I can send (off-list) some suggestions for some potential teachers,
                        if you'd like, and I'd be happy to chat with you about A&S stuff for
                        the event. :)
