Activity overview:

Salt in the past used to be more valuable than gold, they tell us. Is it possible that they are wrong?

Just because something gets repeated a lot, does not make it true. Sometimes, incredible facts are incredible because they are rubbish. I have lost count of the number of times I have been told that salt was once more valuable than gold. If it was, why didn't they use it to buy gold? Why were the areas with easy access to salt, like coasts, not just festooned in gold?

Who is that intruder? It is Skallagrim, who has his own YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/SkallagrimNilsson

Lindybeige: a channel of archaeology, ancient and medieval warfare, rants, swing dance, travelogues, evolution, and whatever else occurs to me to make.

You can now buy the music I use over the end-plates of my videos, which was written as the theme music for The Adventures of Stoke Mandeville, Astronaut and Gentleman: https://lindybeige.bandcamp.com/releases
