The Last Viking Returns

Morning Mead


In practice for the The Last Viking book launch on June 24th, I just had a few friends around for some mead and pickled herring. And very well brought up Vikings they were too. They took off their helmets and swords, and wiped their Ugg boots before coming in the Longhouse.  We then had a few games using the Lewis Chessmen,and eventually threw  axes about,  because that is a traditional Viking pastime,  a bit  like overgrown darts, I suppose. Then they all sailed home and onward to glory. It set me wondering, though, do you think we should have axe throwing competitions at the launch? It would be a hell of a lot more interesting than a long-winded  speech from me.

  1. No, but mead and pickled herring would go down a treat before you sail home and onward to glory. What say you?

  2. Julia, have you ever tasted pickled herring? You need about 4 gallons of mead to wash the damn stuff down. Catch you in about ten days? xN
