    In case anyone doesn't know, by the way, www.ospreypublishing.com has loads of books on historical military equipment, clothes etc. They are thin, depending on the series, but they all come with really nice colour illustrations showing clothing, armour and the like. Very good for researching the look of things.

    Oh, also - the bedlah that's commonly associated with bellydancers and has actually become the standard garb for oriental dancers these days (bra and belt set worn over a skirt) is not a traditional Egyptian garment. The ancient Egyptians did not have bellydancers shimmying all over the place in sequins and bling.

    Ares may not have been real and his helmet may not have been made of swords, but I'll be darned if it isn't cool.

    I would just like to reinforce that the operas that popularized the idea of horned viking helmets definitely aren't from the 17th century. Wagner is 19th century.
