Sometimes news flies under the radar, even for several years, even of a complete hnefatafl set.
This week’s news highlight is the discovery of board game pieces from Roman Iron Age times in Norway. This game is thought to be the predecessor of the Viking Age hnefatafl. Two of the most interesting reads are on LiveScience.com and ScienceAlert.
I’ve just updated Lindisfarne Island with information about a new discovery! The Digventure team found a stunning hnefatafl piece during their excavations in 2019. It’s amazing. For the breaking news, see today’s article in The Guardian.
From hnefatafl to new books, scientific articles and conferences.
