windridge farm article
Sep 3rd, 2006 at 11:29am
 
  I now have in my grimy paws a copy of the excellent article " Lead sling shot from Windridge farm, St Albans, and the use of the sling in the Roman army" by SJ Greep. It was originally published in Britannia magazine in 1987.
  I got it off a site called jstor.com, a wonderful site dealing with history and articles on science. It is, unfortunatly, available only to college libraries. I would be willing to make copies of it to send to people.
  I will talk to a friend of mine ( we badgers aren't really computer savvy, after all, you try typing with inch long claws) about putting it on disc, so I can email.

I'm having a friend put the article ( and all the rest I have ) on discs. As soon as he is done with it, I will send it out to you.

Well, I gave it a shot, and it won't work. I would have to e mail you the 22 pages one at a time.
  So, rather than tear apart the!! @@**# Angry computer apart with my bare hands, anyone wanting the article can send me their address at slingbadger@aol.com, and I will mail them a copy. 
  PS It wouldn't be the first time I did it!!
