Djurhamn Sword Artwork

Here’s something neat. Annika and Bengtowe Angare are photographers and digital retouch artists (check out their site and hover your cursor over each picture!). They’ve photographed the early-16th century sword I found at Djurhamn in 2007 and stuck it point first into the find spot on a vintage map of Djurö!

This post is timely as I have a short talk scheduled for tonight about my work at Djurhamn. Wish me luck!

Thanks to Annika & Bengtowe for permission to blog publish their © image.

    Luck? What about the old Viking saying “A man armed with a mighty sword makes his own luck”? I was going to ask if there’d be a recording, but realised it will be in Swedish. Go there and slay them (metaphorically speaking).

    I am going to give them all the Little Death with the sweetness of my tongue.

    Make sure you dress sharp and stick to the point….

    I’m ashamed that I have no witty remarks nor advice to offer about the talk, but I am grateful to the link to the web page. Their work is lovely!
