Early Iron from A. Espelund

Arne Espelund can bear a certain 'responsibility' for getting me interested in the problem of researching working systems for Viking Age bloomery iron furnaces. I first met Arne at a Parks Canada workshop / research session in 2001. He has been a big help to me, and I have worked on a couple of experimental projects with him over the years since.

 Arne was kind enough to send me an early copy of his latest book 'Evidence & Secrets'. I got about a third of the way into it, then got side tracked by other work (life...). My intent was to provide a personal review, then promote the volume as I could.
