Conquest The discerning Norman group use Toby at the silver wyvern

mailto:toby@thesilverwyvern.co.uk

he has produced several hundred standard well done buckles for us as wella s fancies in Silver and gold etc so is repsonsive to individual pieces


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Thank you very much for yours informations.
I don't know whether you me understand well but I know pour bronze et my home. I need some pictures [photos] of Norman's buckles and strapends for 11th/12th century with accurate century of finding. Indeed if you do not have any photos, so I don't mind :)

BTW: Hasn't you got any pictures of Normans' [Crusaders'] breast crosses?

Thank you
Chris

I think what Nigel was trying to say is that you should first be attempting your own research rather than relying on other peoples hard work, most people are very protective of their own efforts especially traders who earn money as a result. many of us have to trawl through archaeological reports and other publications for this kind of evidence.

I would certainly recommend visiting museum websites such as these below which will certainly give you some ideas:

www.museumoflondon.org.uk
www.britishmuseum.org
www.vam.ac.uk
www.metmuseum.org

There is also a book on dress accessories from a series of London based excavations:

Dress Accessories C.1150-c.1450 (Medieval Finds from Excavations in London) by Geoff Egan.

Good luck

Simon

In which case I wish my Czech was as good as your English, we've been to Praha twice and only picked up a few words. :oops:

Plenty of the larger museums have websites that you can search plus they have the source and dating of the item, you can also try local museums and auction house sites. Local archaeological societies publish journals with excavation reports and the main medieval journal for the UK is published by 'The Society for Medieval Archaeology', their website is:

There's at least one "Norman" piece here (it's number 656)

There's very little stuff available that we can point to and say "Yes, that's Norman". Anything found in England dating from maybe 100 years after the Norman Conquest could be Norman, rather than English, but how would we know?
