I Heart Lars -- Sweaty Iron Age Stud Muffin

My friend Susanna Ives -- who writes historical novels set in Regency and Victorian England -- posted a fascinating (and hysterically funny) account of married life in Iron Age Denmark. If you've always wanted to learn more about smelting, peat bog sacrifice, and heck oxen, then this description of life with a hot pre-Viking guy should be your cup of . . . whatever it was they drank then, which I'm pretty sure they drank out of skulls.

And look at the art! No coyness there. These people knew how to make things clear. The carved pig Ives displays is also pretty nice. I can see something like that in my living room.
