Why hello there! Erm, I'm just some random girl who's plagued with wanderlust and a love of poetry. I happen to have a lot of rather odd, irrelevant interests. I'm sure you can figure out what they are by my posts. The slightly more relevant ones, anyways.
You will find history posts, some really bad attempts at blogging, anime, art, a few fandoms that I merely lurk within, and anything else that piques my interest or amuses me. I'm kind of a contradiction.
Fuck yeah to the kids who feel like they’re dying inside but still gather up the strength to roll out of bed, get dressed, and leave the house. You are strong and beautiful and worth so much more than you know.
Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.
Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.
