youwereswimmingwithsharks said:I feel like most people don't get that you can like a story even if it has ugly moments. It doesn't mean we love the ugly moments, but we have to admit they make it much more accurate (in this case). Loving Outlander doesn't mean we're okay with domestic violence (or rape, or murder, etc.), it means we get that it was a reality back then. If we stop reading/watching everything with ugly scenes, the only thing left will be Teletubbies. What's the problem with portraying reality?
Members of the Manx Detectorists Society have found fragments of the hilt of a Viking Period display sword. It’s cast in bronze with rich Borre Style decoration (c. AD 850-1000) and silver wire frills. Though settled by the Norsemen from about AD 800 onward, the island has not previously produced any of their swords.
