ULFBERHT Made Me
12 November 2012 | by (St. Andrews, Scotland) – See all my reviews

What is in a name? Considered the ultimate weapon of the Viking era. The authentic swords that bore this name inscribed were of remarkable craftsmanship and made of unique steel.

The Ulfberht sword was made using technological wisdom way before it's day.

Here, we have a scientific detective story.

This hands-on documentary film provides succinct information packed with colourful descriptions that truly enhances the acceptability of the viewer to see it again and again!

The production is of extremely high calibre.

Strongly recommended!
