Red glass in the purse lid! Now that would be cheap. Mitford doesn't mention any such thing -- blue glass, yes and over 1,500 garnets in the lid alone. Birgit Arrhenius suggests that the garnets, mostly, came from Bohemia and uses modern techniques to back up her claim. I am not sure that being a bi...

The point of the thread was to discuss the origins of the stuff from Sutton Hoo. However, since the thread started no-one has mentioned that subject. Somehow the Viking sword pommel thread got equated with the sword pommel from Sutton Hoo I would like to state clearly, that that sword (the Sutton Ho...

I'd be happy to debate the origins of the stuff from Sutton Hoo should anyone wish to do so. Perhaps it is off topic on this thread? Shall we start a new one? I am very surprised that Rupert Bruce-Mitford, Basil Brown, Charles Philips, etc, were unaware of Scandinavia, and that the Vikings were arou...

"Sutton Hoo is a very famous ship burial 7th cent ,Its Saxon with lots of viking infulence "

Mmmm! Difficult -- now Scandinavian influence, possibly - not Viking - the Viking period doesn't start until the late 8th century.

I am experimenting with linen armour in the 6th and 7th centuries. There is no evidence for it at all - except they had linen and a need for armour, and it seems, linen can make very effective armour, which can even defend against arrows. My original thoughts were to glue the layers but there appear...

I am really grateful for all the useful advice. This is really helpful -- I shall certainly seek alternatives to rabbit glue.

Many thanks,

layered linen

I want to experiment with layered linen armour, maybe even combining it with a leather underlayer. Anyone got any experience in working with linen in this way? Will rabbit glue be sufficient? -- I am thinking of up to ten layers - do the layers need to be moulded into shape as they are glued? How do...

I agree with al that you have said, Bearclaw. A bit of a landmark and probably a cult success.

Now a good film about Raedwald -- who to star?
