Given the previous discussion on this list (or was it
H-Costume? I get confused...), I was under the
impression that something resembling a lucet was found
in Viking archaeologic evidence, but not actually any
cords that could have been made in that fashion. If,
in fact, cords have been found, can you point me to
the source for this information? I don't want to give
out bad information to people concerning lucets. And,
I have been asked a few times since those last
discussions. <sigh>
