Quite bad and outdated. Do not use this source as it's views are passe and no longer in vouge.
This book is not a well research item as the author should be in no doubt aware that the term ‘chain mail’ is a relevantly modern invention (Victorian or 1970s depending on who you believe) and it is psychically impossible to draw a sword, due to the length of the weapon, from a scabbard mounted on one’s back. Maybe the author should do a little practical archaeology before relying on outdate historical concepts.
