Puppetry, Vikings, Ceramics, Digital Library collections

Greetings All! This week's links: Anthropology and Archaeology links for we
rabid researchers, Weaving, Museums, Art in several approaches, Nordic
Underwater Archeaology (I wasted a good ten minutes playing with the
interactive link-button for the History of Shipbuilding, alone ;),
International Puppetry, Vikings (somewhere in these pages is a terrific link
to the Jorvik Viking Center in York---*flash reccomended*) , Ceramics, and
lastly the Cornell University Prototype Digital Library which has an image
library with works from our period along with the Icelandic Sagas links

If you aren't viewing this post in plain vanilla text, you might note that a
simple search with the word museum (the word highlighted in each entry)
brought up all this wealth of material ;). The internet is like a box of
chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.

Enjoy! As always, feel free to forward this stuff anywhere it's wanted so
long as the copyright notice is included.
