Myths of the Huns

Myths of the Huns

Not about WWI, before you ask…  Some of you may be interested in this, although it’s not about wargames.  There was a recent issue of Wargames Illustrated that trotted out most of the usual guff about Huns (largely because it was written by a couple of the ‘usual suspects’), including their supposedly deformed skulls.  If you found that interesting, read this!

By the way, I call this a ‘myth’ without irony (given my previous post) because, as I hope you’ll see, the interpretation of deformed skulls as ‘Hunnic’ does not follow logically from the evidence; it is not something that is simply based upon a different selection of equally valid evidence.
