Belgian battlefields and Viking wisdom

If you follow this blog, you know I was recently in Belgium and England. I'm settled back in Spain now and writing up my travels for various sites. Two articles have come out recently. The first is for a cool travel site called The Scout Project, which has published my article on the World War One battlefields in Belgium.

I also have an article out with Black Gate on the British Museum's blockbuster Viking exhibition titled Viking Art, Magic, and Wisdom at the British Museum. This show is full of surprising artifacts like this 10th century gold ear spoon used for cleaning out wax.

I've just been signed up to do a weekly series on historical travel for Black Gate, so you'll be seeing plenty of me over there!

Ear wax? Didn't need to know that.
Glad you're doing so many articles now!

Interesting. Some historical fiction writer could use that in a story, I'm sure.
