      Anyone who attended Bill Short's lecture a few weeks ago realize
      what a talented and gifted researcher and lecturer that he is. In
      preparation for his next book--on combat in the sagas--he has updated
      his list of weapons ^ combat in the sagas--enlarging it to include
      unarmed combat:
      <http://www.hurstwic.org/library/arms_in_sagas/arms_in_sagas.pdf>http://www.hurstwic.org/library/arms_in_sagas/arms_in_sagas.pdf

      Bill notes that "The file was created using modern Icelandic editions
      and English translations, taking advantage of recent advances in saga
      scholarship, and avoiding the romantic errors in some commonly-used
      on-line translations."

      For anyone who missed the phenomenal lecture and event, we're
      starting to arrange another visit by Bill next year, probably up in
      the Chicago area!

      Cheers, Folo
