There's two links I would like to share. (Well, there's more -- I've collected some links in the past that I really should post here for resources, but we'll start with two right now) The first is a really cool metal work method found at Birka that my friend Eithni pointed out to me. This site has some lovely examples based on those finds: Silberknoten's posaments. I think I shall have to learn how to do this at some point.
The second link is something I came across today: the Skaldic Project Homepage. It's a searchable database of skaldic works, and includes lists of kennings and other cool things.
The title for today's post comes from verse 57 from Hávamál:
"Flames from one log leap to another,
fire kindles fire;
a man's wit shows in his words,
stupidity is silent."
