Ragnvald the Varangian in WSS 84



In WSS issue 84 I had an article "From rune stones to the plains of Italy - Ragnvald and the Battle of Cannae, 1018" telling about that Scandinavians didn’t only travel westwards. A great deal of voyages were made to the east. Naturally enough, it was mainly people from Sweden who were travelling in that direction. It was the eastern voyages and the influences of the countries there that gave the Swedish Viking Age its special colour and flavour. I thought I should post the pictures that wasn´t used in the article.


They are from when I and my matey Jonas (that also painted all the Normans for our Salute 2016 game - Foteviken 1134) had a couple of test runs of the scenarios included in the article that revolves around the Battle of Cannae, 1018. If you don´t have issue 84 you can order it here.
