Re: Viking Skull Cup
- I don't think the History Channel is a good resource...but who knows.
I think it was on the special "The Dark Ages" or "Barbarians II" but
they talked about some raider who killed the king, took his wife and
made a cup from his skull and would make her drink from it.
I think she ended up killing him. Go women!
Sorry I can't remember the name!

skulls of dead monks, many of those for sale today are part of the
appalling traffic in human body parts that has been going on in
India. And I wouldn't purchase a modern one.
Also, i think there isn't much of a relationship between Tibet and Scandinavia.
