I have the immense pleasure and excitement today to share with you a video made by Fantasy, Historical Fiction and Sci-fi author Christian (also known as Miles) Cameron, all about Norse weaponry and equipment.
Christian produces his #writingfighting series regularly which is so interesting and you for sure need to check out. For Norsevember though, he’s made this very special edition for us:
I hope you enjoyed the video as much as I did. If you want more, be sure to check out writing fighting here and stay tuned as in December, Christian is bringing out a series of videos on Ancient Greece.
That’s me in normal, modern clothes, sitting in Philopoemen’s seat at the theater of Megalopolis.
I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1962. I grew up in Rockport, Massachusetts, Iowa City, Iowa, and Rochester, New York, where I attended McQuaid Jesuit High School and later graduated from the University of Rochester with a degree in history.
After the longest undergraduate degree on record (1980-87), I joined the United States Navy, where I served as an intelligence officer and as a backseater in S-3 Vikings in the First Gulf War, and then on the ground in Somalia, and elsewhere. After a dozen years of service, I became a full time writer in 2000. I live in Toronto (that’s Ontario, in Canada) with my wife Sarah and our daughter Beatrice, currently age fourteen. I’m a full time novelist, and it is the best job in the world.
I am also a dedicated reenactor; it is like a job, except that in addition to work, you must pay to participate. You can follow some of my recreated projects on the Agora. We are always recruiting, so if you’d like to try the ancient world or the medieval world, follow the link to contact us. Come on. You know you want to.
