there was a good article about viking boats in scientific american about a
month ago. i happened over it by chance, but it would be a good resource
for anyone who wants some good archeological data to back up their
rjuriks. i can't remember which issue it was, but it had an archaeopterix

on a related ainurean theme, how navigable is the river that flows through
