We touched briefly on the subject of the recent paper by C Hedenstierna-Jonson et al, http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ajpa.23308/full, found this response by Judith Jesch http://norseandviking.blogspot.ca/2017/09/lets-debate-female-viking-warriors-yet.html balanced and covered many of the major questions he was left with after reading the AJPA paper.
