British Associations too. Probably one local to you.
Here in NC we have them locally.
For period tools the Mastermyr Find - A Viking Age Toolchest
from Gotland by Greta Awidsson can't be beat.
You can get a copy for $18 plus $2 shipping within the U.S.
or more elsewhere. I encouraged its reprinting.
Norm Larson Books,
5426 E. Hwy 246, Lompoc, CA 93436.
Fax 805-735-8367, Ph 800-743-4766
Postage is $2 for first book
plus $.50 for each additional book to a maximum of $5.00
Has many blacksmithing tools, a few jewellers tools,
woodworking tools, the chest and its lock in detail,
a folding fish griddle that suspends and a cauldron.
The boat apparently turned over in a swamp that eventually
became a farmed meadow in the early 1900's. The plow
turned it up. Wonderful assortment.
You might also try finding (by ILL as it is rare).
PETERSEN, JAN. Vikingetidens Redskaper.
[Viking Age Tools], Oslo, 1951.
Lex 8vo. 536 pp. with 278 text fig.
Price: DKK 1,500.00 Those are Danish Kronors.
This has another much smaller smith's tools
and also articles on viking age swords and
other things. I haven't entered it into my
documents for quoting the articles yet.:
Müller-Wille Michael, Kurt Schietzel (Hrsg.):
*Offa Berichte und Mitteilungen zur Urgeschichte,
Frühgeschichte und Mittelalterarchäologie,
Wachholtz Neumünster Deutschland 1984 Okart.
Okart. ber. 241 S.° - <Bestellnr. GE 16403>
m. zahlr. Abb. a. Taf. u. i. Text, sowie Kartenskizzen,
z. T. gefalt. Aus der Reihe Offa-Bände, *Band 41.*
[SW: Vor- und Frühgeschichte Urgeschichte Archäologie
Mittelalter Deutsch Englisch]
An article or two in English, the rest in German.
Basically OFFA Volume 41.
Try http://www.ZVAB.com/ for a German search engine
or ILL it too. This should be available in the
$25 to 80 price range depending on individual seller's
greed. Probably in a good archaeological library like
Duke's or Chapel Hill's here in NC, USA.
Magnus, OL, Barony of Windmasters Hill, SCA; Regia.org,
- If anyone is interested in hinges or hardware for this chest (or
any other), feel free to contact me at:
I'm finally recovering from Pennsic and will be smithing again
this weekend. Have gotten a few requests already and would be happy to do
