The Fireworks of 2020

What a year this was. Don’t know about you, but I’m still reeling. But the fireworks that heralded the new year last Thursday, suddenly made me realise that 2020 still had fireworks, too! With wonderful new discoveries and studies about the Viking Age.

Hail to the Museums!

My favourite thing of all, was discovering so many museums started sharing their collections online. If not at first, then certainly in the course of the year!

This article first appeared in 2019, but the views increased spectacularly in 2020. All with thanks to the ongoing excavation.

Noteworthy News Items

There were fantastic discoveries in the news, too. Most remained a bit out of the limelight, I thought. Hopefully, to return with a lot of noise in 2021 with exciting discoveries!

The rich history of the Viking Age is a source of inspiration for my web site The Viking Age Archive, and for writing stories in general.
