I have been blogging for a year and a third now, and I seem to have about twenty weekly readers. I have more or less kept my plans to post once a week on something loosely related to the ancient world and the martial side of history, although a few weird science-fiction devices like cuirassier armour and thoughts about education policy in Canada have crept in. My most popular post seems to be the one where I ask whether the Greeks wore glued linen armour.

As I recover from a busy semester, it seems time to ask some of my gentle readers to speak up and tell me what they would like to see. Bronze Age or Iron Age? Books or swords? Canadian politics or intrigue at the King’s court? Travel pictures or long passages in prose? I can’t guarantee that anything which you suggest will catch my fancy, but I will at least think about it.
