      and Medieval Combs CD's. The next one should be on
      weapons - swords, axes, spears.

      Dear Viking friends,
      Finally, we have our next CD-R about Viking objects ready. It deals with
      Viking Knives, and contains pictures and drawings, as well as detailed
      images of real as well as reconstructed knives. As usual, there are also
      high resolution photos, possible to zoom to show details of the
      different knives.Please visit www.arkeodok.com.

      I would also like to take the opportunity to inform you about Viking
      History courses run by Gotland University. We are in a couple of weeks
      beginning this summer´s excavation course of the Viking Port of Trade at
      Frojel. Later on in autumn, there will be an Internet course about
      Viking society, followed next spring with another Internet based course,
      as well as a new summer excavation course of the Viking trading place at
      Frojel. For more information and for register to the courses, please go
      to www.hgo.se, and the English pages. Keep in mind that joining a
      Swedish university course is always free of charge, except for a small
      fee to the students union.

      Yours Truly
      Dan Carlsson

        Dear Viking friends,
        Finally, the CD about Viking Jewellery is finished and ready to go. As
        usual, it takes far more time then you expect, but anyway, now it is
        ready. It contains some 100 photos and galleries of brooches,
        belt-buckles, pendants etc. Interested to find out more, please go to
        our home page at: www.arkeodok.com

        As you might recall, I had a question to you all under the headline of
        Strange Artefacts about a piece of blue glass fitted into a bronze
        cylinder. From all the answers, I am pretty sure it is a kind of
        decoration to a Christian religious object, like a cross, a shrine or a
        cover to a book. Interesting is that they have found a very similar
        piece in the town of Sigtuna in middle Sweden. On the page, there is a
        new photo of the one from Sigtuna, and you can judge by yourself.

        Finally, I have once again news about a new silver hoard found on the
        island of Gotland. The excavation is going on at this very moment, and
        so far some 300 coins have been found, mainly from 11th century. As you
        might know, Gotland is tremendously rich in Viking Age, not at least
        shown by the about 700 silver and gold hoards that have been found on
        the island.
        Best regards
        Dan Carlsson
