Default Downloadable books/articles

As time goes on, more and more publications are digitised and become freely (and legitimately) available online. Not finding any threads dedicated to listing such resources, perhaps we should have one.

Here is one book of interest, courtesy of the Smithsonian:

American and European Swords in the Historical Collections of the United States National Museum
Belote, Theodore T.

Way cool, thanks a lot. This might be one to have in print.

Cheers

Default Link broken?

Timo,

I tried the link but it gets forwarded to some .edu url and then no server is found.

Does it work for anybody else?

Their URI above is supposed to be the best link, since it lets them change where it is on their network, and the URI will redirect to the new link. But something is not working at the moment.

So, try https://repository.si.edu/handle/10088/10007

Articles from sold-out volumes (currently vols 1-3) of Acta Militaria Mediaevalia are available from the publisher:

Most articles are in Polish, with English summaries.
