A skeleton discovered on an archaeological dig in East Lothian may be a 10th Century Irish Viking who was king of Dublin and Northumbria.

King Olaf Guthfrithsson led raids on Auldhame and nearby Tyninghame shortly before his death in 941.

To pay homage to Olaf, you had to suck his nipples!  Them was the days.

  • If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

And he didn't rise from the grave to wreak decapitation vengeance on the living? Damn spell books...

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.
