Another fantastic selection of material... Flicked through the first few: I'm particularly liking the Hoplite Experience - sounds like not a lot of fun.
The Law's link is interesting - it's a little strange how different value is placed on different people. A 50% ownership divorce law is also pretty odd!
This is all going into my next homebrew setting...
Thanks very much!

Seems to make a difference who proposed, possibly?
It's a little confusing.
Either way, it makes it pretty clear that there were better things than being a slave!
The mining one is fairly odd. Trusted slaves were given incentives (like houses!) to make sure silver wasn't stolen... Odd.

alsih2o, your sig link will only work for a community supporter, I think, since it references a search result. Could you post the link directly? More specifically, to info on Vikings!
