I'm trying to find out some more information about building a traditional viking style forge. Does anyone out there know of any resources that might be able to help? I'd really appreciate it!!

I don't know how much these links will help I couldn't find the link I was looking for.  here is a links page of viking resources and groupsviking links and here is a site on ancient metalurgy that might be usefull, some of these guys could likely direct you to images or plans for a viking forge if you send them an email, they are the real deal ancient Metalurgy
hope that helps a little.

Check out the Mastermyr find at http://www.netlabs.n...osan/Mastermyr/

The Mastermyr tool chest had a bunch of Viking age blasksmithing tools in it.

The York Archeological Trust published a series of books on anglo/norse finds in the Copergate area.  If I recall corectly, several of them had items of interest to the Viking smith.

I do some Viking living history stuff, so if you need more info, let me know.
