I went to the British Museum a while back and took some pictures. I was looking for Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse artifacts to give me a feel for the way people were living
I also saw that famous helmet found at the Sutton Hoo burial ground.
I’m interested by this reconstruction thing. My project is a history of a word. One of the key difficulties with this is the fact that no-one knows too much about a specific word with any great certainty. The picture I’m trying to create feels similar to the mosaic and plaque below. There’s only so far I can go, and even then that process doesn’t do everything I want it to do.
Here’s a link to a good resource of pictures of Scandinavian rock carvings: On the Rocks
