- Not actually Thor -

Greetings weary travelers of tumblr, I am Not Thor Odinson or Oliver, which ever you prefer really?
Well I suppose I ought to explain myself. I love history and especially arms and armour, I am just a little too obsessed with mythology and Norse gods.

I love way to many TV shows and films to keep track of but I hope you find something you enjoy.

As many of you will have noticed I have turned into somewhat of a Vikings/Teen Wolf blog, apologies to those that don't watch those shows, and also those that do just know I have a general disdain for Sterek fans and this fandom.

Adieu!

Flintlock hand mortar 1760

Hand mortars were used to fire grenades. The Earl of Albemarle family tradition notes that this example was used at the Siege of Manila in 1762 during the Seven Years War (1756-1763).
