Link added to my webpage which includes more detail on atgeir-type weapons. More than need be included on the wikipage. Netvike (talk) 22:14, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

I am removing this external link. Chunjee (talk) 16:06, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

The first paragraph contradicts itself several times. In the first sentence it states unequivocally that the term predates the "Viking Age" and does not appear at all during the Viking Age. Then in the third sentence it states just as unequivocally that it refers to an item that existed only after the Viking Age. If this is meant to suggest a documented historical example of precognition, I'd like to see a source citation.

Then the second paragraph contradicts all of the above by stating that the term refers to a polearm of the Viking Age! What??

The perpetrator of this confusion appears to be Netvike, who slapped a new opening para on the article without checking to see if it fits the rest of the article. I hesitate to simply remove the offending first paragraph because there seems to be the germ of scholarship here. But his thesis is unclear and rambling. It requires significant improvements in clarity, and should be edited into the article, not just dumped at the top of it. (talk) 03:23, 12 December 2013 (UTC) no longer valid resource[edit]
