Daily Histoire

Daily facts, recipes, mythology, and history.

IMAGES: With so many social media outlets, many times I cannot find the original photographer's feed or site (or it's been reposted/altered by someone claiming it as their own).
Would love to credit your image - email info@rocklove.com.

SOURCES: Many of the facts are compiled from multiple sources - dissertations & publications quoting the same research. Happy to provide a bibliography, I just don't include it per post to avoid overwhelming text.

RECIPES: Some are adapted for the modern day kitchen; many include sources and historical notes identifying more authentic ingredients. The goal is to learn something fun and traditional that you can cook for yourself... rather than list unattainable ingredients with instructions for over a fire pit ;)

Viking Battle Technique - Part I

Medieval texts describe Viking warriors as fearless of death - this may in part be due to their offensive battle technique. Shields were a useful tool when approaching the opponent, and good for a few mortal maneuvers when treated as a weapon… however the Vikings would then cast aside their defense and attack with weapons in both hands.
