Ógnvaldarnir / Men of Terror

Saturday, August 21st at 2 pm Dr. William R. Short and Reynir A. Óskarson will discuss their analysis of Viking age combat artifacts on display at the National Museum of Iceland. The presentation is based on their scientific study of the combative methods of Vikings. In this gallery discussion, they will talk about their unique and occasionally bizarre research methods, the surprising outcomes, and what the results teach us about the artifacts on display.
Dr. Short and Mr. Óskarson are members of the Hurstwic organization, based in the United States, that has conducted research on combat methods for more than 20 years. Their findings have now been put in writing in a book called Men of Terror: A comprehensive analysis of Viking combat, which will be published in September.
The presentation will be in English.
