WATCH PLAYLIST https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kBNT5t5rd8&list=PLRPW3IFnQj1x17hRePWRYDaq7DEajSW98 The Viking sword was the primary weapon of the Viking. It was a development of the Roman spatha, evolving out of the Migration Period sword in the 8th century, and into the classical knightly sword in the 11th century with the emergence of larger cross-guards. The Viking swords were pattern welded which gave the blade extra strength as the core was made of springy iron and edge of hard steel. Of particular note is the "Ulfberht" subset, which used steel of higher purity and carbon content than its peers in the region that may have been imported in ingot. Blade length varied from 71 to 84 centimetres. Early examples have single, deep, wide fullers running the full length of the blade. Later examples have multiple narrow fullers. A fuller reduces the weight of the blade without compromising its strength. This weight reduction would allow the wielder to swing faster and harder strokes. Later swords also had more tapered points for increased effectiveness against chain mail. All have short single-handed hilts with pyramid, lobed or cocked-hat style pommels. Pommels were made of iron and were heavier than on the earlier Migration Period sword.

Bella Italia! An historic picture book, from the snow covered Alps in the north to the dreamy lagoon city of Venice whose palaces are built on wooden stakes and whose "Carnevale" is world famous. From the romantic hill landscape of Tosca where the aromas once inspired Leonardo Da Vinci, to Rome, the city that during antiquity was the centre of the Roman Empire and that is now the seat of the Catholic Pope. To Sicily in the south, an island of gods and natural forces. A journey through time in one of the most beautiful counties in Central Europe. Venice, a town with a hundred and twenty churches. The largest and most famous is the Basilica Di San Marco and, due to its magnificence, it is also called, "The Golden Basilica". Byzantine elements and Late Gothic lines unite in the beautiful domed ceiling of the Basilica. The Canal Grande is regarded as Venice's main street. It weaves through the main lagoon city past palaces, churches and houses. The boat service called, Vaporetto, plus gondolas and small motorboats, replace buses, cars and bicycles. Pope Pius The Second was born in Corsignano. At the height of his papacy he ordered the Florentine architect, Rosselino, to build a cathedral with a Bishop's Palace and further palaces. In only a few years of building the only city of the Renaissance was founded and was then renamed Pienza, The City of Pius. At approximately one hundred and ninety seven thousand acres and divided into over seven hundred wine growing estates in the hill region between Florence and Siena, is a name famous all over the world for its wine: Chianti! The region's first vines were planted by the Etruscans and in the early Middle Ages it was the monks of Vallombrosa who cleared the uninhabited hill slopes and cultivated the first vineyards. Italy is always worth a visit. With its great variety of natural landscapes and cultures it is a land of joie de vivre that enchants both body and soul. Bella Italia - a fairy tale come true!
