A few photos from the weekend at Glastonbury Medieval Fayre. More to come! #dracabeordor #Vikings #VikeLife #earlymedieval #History #Reenactment #livinghistory #easterweekend
Couple more shots to show off the details on my Viking hood. Really, really happy with how it's coming together. Practically done except for possibly adding some trim to the bottom edge on the sides and back panel. Then I just need to write up my documentation. . #historical #recreation #recreationist #reenactment #reenactor #norse #viking #gaelacia #adrianempire #embroidery #yggdrasil #runes #Valkyrie #pagan #sewing #handsewn #hood #wip #vikingdress #vikingclothes #earlymedieval #oldways #bannerwar2019

‪An ill wind is blowing over the Wihtwara & #Arwald ’s men have assembled at the fishing village that one day will be called Ryde. The night muggy but clear & the King can see the on coming storm‬ ‪#Caedwalla ’s forces are mounting across the Solent ready for first light #isleofwight#sevethcentury #earlymedieval #medieval #storytelling
Last weekend we did another Vikings in the Galleries demo at the @nordicmuseum in Ballard along with other members of the Northwest Viking Alliance. We were so busy talking with interested museum patrons that we didn't get many photos, but here are a few of our jarl and Alliance elder VilhjálmrR and Alliance elders Hengist and Maricka. #viking #vikings #norse #vendel #earlymedieval #livinghistory #reenactment #vikingreenactment #vendelera #nordicmuseum #ballard #birka #sweden #denmark #silver #silk #trade #diamondtwill #wool #gnezdovo #helmet #northwestvikingalliance

Gardiennes des traditions familiales, les épouses nordiques étaient de véritables maîtresses de maisons (húsfreyja) . Elles avaient de l'autorité et étaient respectées. Leur sagesse était reconnue, leurs paroles écoutées avec attention.

Всем доброго утра и хорошего дня! А у нас испеклось ещё несколько кружек по готландской находке. Часть - с тёмно-синей озёрной гладью внутри, а несколько в травянисто-охристой гамме. New Cups from Gotland, Viking Age! #связьвремён #мастерскаясвязьвремён #керамика #реконструкция #эпохавикингов #раннеесредевековье #викинги #славяне #vikings #vikingreenactment #gotland #готланд #средневековье #иcторическаяреконструкция #medieval #reenactment #pottery #earlymedieval #darkages #vikingage
‪2 days to go and #King #Arwald is ready; a network of beckons set from one side or the island to the other. The king entrusts his two brothers “The First Fruits” to his best men to take them into hiding. Arwald then goes to the #longstone to pray to old Gods. For tomorrow they ready for battle, for their home, their Gods and their independence #isleofwight#seventhcentury #medieval #earlymedieval #lastpaganking #jutish #jute #pagan #storyteller #storytelling #starwald
There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after. -Tolkien #medievalfarm #erveemezutphen #vikingage #naturalchildhood #vikings #earlymedieval #nature
Масляные светильники сделаны по находке из Новгорода, с Рюрикова городища, и датированы IX веком, однако подобных много было на Руси и в Скандинавии в эпоху викингов. Выполнены из огнеупорной шамотной глины. Для освещения можно использовать любое растительное масло. По личному опыту - лучше всего льняное, так как не даёт запаха, но можно и подсолнечное. Также понадобится кусок любой тряпки или верёвки на фитиль. Горит долго, при этом даёт ощутимое тепло. Саксонку немалых размеров два светильника изнутри неплохо согревают. Но для использования в помещении требуется известная осторожность. Также можно использовать просто как подсвечник под толстую свечу. Ножка внутри полая - можно насадить на палку и использовать для уличного освещения. Такие же светильники есть в наличии. Стоимость составляет 500 р. за штуку. Если заинтересовались - пишите в Direct! Так как мы едем на Русборг - можем бесплатно привезти туда. Даёшь аутентичное освещение! Oil lamps from Novgorod, Ryurik settlement, dated to the 9th century, however there were many similar in Russia and Scandinavia in the Viking Age. Made of refractory chamotte clay. #связьвремён #керамика #реконструкция #раннеесредевековье #викинги #славяне #vikings #vikingreenactment #древнийновгород #средневековье #иcторическаяреконструкция #medieval #reenactment #pottery #earlymedieval #darkages #vikingage
Managed to line up the reverse side of the mould and get it carved today, so we now have a reproduction #earlymedieval double sided #pewterjesus . I cast a few to check the mould, and made a couple of small tweaks to make sure it was pouring fairly clearly. Pretty happy with these now, and one is destined for the @emidsvikings handling collection #reenactment #vikings #anglosaxons #experimentalarchaeology
Last coat of oil done, the final thing is to add the #runic inscription to its new owner, though I won't be sharing pictures of that because its new owner might be watching, and able to transcribe it! #woodwork #earlymedieval #vikingage
Doing what I do best: exploring Scotland's past. This picture: Dunadd Fort, ancient monument. Once the heart of the Gaelic kingdom named Dàl Riata more than 1,300 years ago. A place of historical and cultural significance... Beautiful views over the Mòine Mhòr bog and Kilmartin Glen. #dunadd #fort #kilmartinglen #moinemhor #dalriata #scotland #scottish #earlymedieval #history #kings #crowned #economic #cultural #setting #archaeology #ruins #historical #remnants #past #people #instascotland #fortress #wander #getoutside #explore
Набор лепной посуды на основе находок с острова Готланд. Поедет в качестве приза на Русборг! Dishes based on finds from the island of Gotland.

🏛Our first episode will be an interesting one. I’m going to take a look at the world we start our journey in, a world where the greatest civilisation in Europe is falling apart at the hands of barbarians, pirates and political/economic crises. From there, it’ll be the Early Middle Ages and a long adventure awaits us! 🏰 ➖ Support the podcast before its release on Patreon: ➖ ⚔️patreon.com/medievalpodcast⚔️ 🌍Link in profile🌍 📚@medievalpodcast 📚 🔥Hosted by The Augustus🔥 ➖ #constantine #constantinethegreat #rome #roman #romans #roma #ancient #ancienthistory #ancientrome #ancientroman #ancientromans #ancientromanhistory #fallofrome #earlymedieval #earlymiddleages #barbarian #barbarians #goths #vandals #franks #visigoths #huns #alaric #romanbritain #angles #saxons #jutes #anglosaxons #justinian #belisarius
Diseart Chiarin, the monastery founded by St Ciarán of Castlekeernan in the 700s near Kells, was an important ecclesiastical site: so much so it was plundered by the Vikings in 949 and Dermot MacMurragh in 1170. Three high crosses are located in the graveyard, as well as a medieval cross slab and a fantastic ogham stone which is carved with the words T_COVAGNI MAQI MUCOI LUGUNI ITI, which has recently been translated as: ‘Of Thy Cuan son of the sons of Luigne’.
These little guys seem to be casting OK, so time to repeat the design on another piece as the originals are double sided! #vikings #earlymedieval #pewterjesus (believe it or not there are already 3 #pewterjesus public posts on Instagram!)
The Hunterston brooch, the most richly decorated early medieval brooch ever found in Scotland. #medievalbrooch #medievaljewelry #medievalartfacts #medievaleurope #ireland #mundomedievo #earlymedieval
Iron cross from our drawing project in Monte San Martino (Trentino), a fortified hilltop settlement. Was found in the area around the church. Height: 22 cm. The interpretation of such crosses remains still problematic. #arch_illu #ArchäologischeIllustrationen #FindsFriday #church #instadrawing #trentino #hilltop #settlement #earlymedieval #archaeology #archäologie #italia
The Silver Celtic Cross is inspired by the richly decorated High Crosses erected in Ireland during the early Christian Period. 🇫🇮🇬🇧 #celtic #medievalhistory #medievalartfacts #medievalcross #celtichistory #medievalarcheology #mundomedievo #earlymedieval
Three days to go & #King #Arwald is preparing for invasion — you could breathe the tension on Wihtwara as the people prepare to fight for their land & their faith. This was more than a land grab but a holy war on the corner of Britain where the old gods still lived. #IsleofWight #medieval #earlymedieval #seventhcentury #pagan #lastpaganking #jute
Decided to switch to making some antler moulds after my soapstone disasters; in this instance for some early medieval lead-alloy crucifix reproductions. @emidsvikings #vikings #earlymedieval #vikingreenactnent #experimentalarchaeology

Have you recognised Einar Selvik there? Hafs létum vér hesta hlýr stinn á brim renna, meðan á bjartar brynjur blóði dreif um síður; ylgr gein, arnar, mönnum, eyddist gráðr, of svíra, harðmeldr gátum heiðan hveðnu, blóði roðna. Vestr fór ek of ver, en ek Viðris ber munstrandar mar, Svá 's mitt of far; drók eik á flot við ísabrot, hlóðk mærðar hlut hugknarrar skut. heilir hildar til, heilir hildi frá, koma þeir heilir hvaðan. We let the strong cheek of the horses of the sea run to the waves, the sides of our bright mail splattered with blood. The she-wolf feasted, the hunger of the eagles was sated on the blood from men’s reddened necks, while we seized the hard meal of the Fish’s land. By sun and moon I journeyed west, My sea-borne tune From Odin's breast My sing-ship packed With poet's art: It's word-keel cracked The frozen heart. Safe into battle,safe out of battle, and safe return from the strife.

Sometimes this happens; a few imperfections in the soapstone were weakened by the trial cast, so popped of, which means I'll have to start again! #vikings #earlymedieval
Trialing some crude lead-alloy brooches today for @emidsvikings (my reproductions in lead-free pewter). This one is a crude Terslev style in from the Great Army camp at Torksey, seem to have come out ok; just need to bulk up the ornament strands in the soapstone mould now , to make them a bit fatter. #vikings #vikingreenactnent #reenactment #earlymedieval #livinghistory

If your opponent defends with halbschild against your strike from 3rd guard, then wind to your high right with your sword, and push his weapons aside by transitioning with your shield from the open to the eber position.

Saint Saran's Church and Cemetery #offalyIreland Saran a 7th century hermit from #clonmacnoise founded his Church here called Teach Saran on the banks of the River Brosna in Moystown Demesne. Saint Saran's Church and Holy Well have been sites of major worship and pilgrimage in earlier times.

UCD MSc in Experimental Archaeology & Material Culture class casting early medieval bronze brooches, at the Centre for Experimental Archaeology & Material Culture using their own bivalve clay moulds, based on archaeological evidence from Dooey, Co. Donegal. #earlymedieval #experimentalarchaeology #Donegal #brooch #archaeology
Taken all day, but finally got it to this stage, where I need to add more material and make up the suspension loop next. I try my best to keep the sculpts as rough as the originals, as whilst there are undoubtedly some amazing works of early medieval art, many, like this, are fairly crude and simplistic affairs, with visible asymmetry, and imperfections. #vikings #earlymedieval
Next item I'm sculpting currently is this terslev style pendant from Kirkby Green, Lincolnshire. The pendant I am sculpting is actually size, but the drawing it is next to is not, but enlarged for me to see the detail. #earlymedieval #vikingreenactnent #vikings
Details of the beads set. Upper chain: mix of glass beads replicas based on various scandinavian findings (some of those are ones I got from amazing @annethearcher 🍃). Lower chain: pendant replica of Gotland finding, with an amethyst instead od cristal, together with over fifty small violet glass beads from @medievalcraft.eu This picture is just one of a few we took in Gudvangen last summer during shoot of @illr.systir clothes. My friends sew them with passion and each piece is totally unique - I really recommend them to everybody looking for viking and slavic clothes made to order 🌿 #earlymedieval #reenactment #vikings #vikingwoman #illrsystir #vikingclothes #vikingdress #vikingreenactment
