Bookmarks Menu

The the following list is imported straight off my own collection of working bookmarks / somewhat edited for content.
It is presented here for those who wish to dig and hunt, there are a number of reference sources on history, metalwork, and interesting (weird) topics. This is obviously a much fuller set of links that you will find in the other various locations over the Wareham Forge web site. The organization here is one that makes sense to me - but may say more about how my mind works that offering a clear pathway through the list...

This list compiled February 21, 2018
Note - not all these links have been recently tested
