Gentleman with the bullhorn, I both respect your willingness to put your conviction into action, and appreciate that you are discoursing on Christian doctrine instead of the particular sins you dislike. But what do you imagine you are accomplishing? Do you think you're going to run into the one person in the western hemisphere who hasn't heard of the Jesus? And even if you do, is your street corner symposium likely to convert them?

Do you know almost nothing about early medieval art styles? Here's a quick look over the field:

I'm no archeologist, but I'm not sure the case for this being a Slav is that much. I accept that's a South Baltic ax. But the presense of an Arabic coin (I'd be surprised if there's only one) shows this person was recipient of goods traded from far away---why not an ax? Also, I hope a forensic archeologist has checked the sex of the bones. ;-)

Still, I may be too doubtful. It's good to see evidence of mobility and trade in what too many people think was a "Dark Age".
