I would love to see the hoard. Maybe it will have settled in a museum somewhere by the time I get to the UK again. It looked really impressive. I saw the Sutton Hoo stuff, a couple of trips ago. My poor long-suffering husband gets dragged around so many museums whenever I'm there. He came to the British Museum with me, but made me go to the V & A by myself. Grin

Sent in my questionnaire!
My favourite periods are 1) Alemannic (early medieval South Germany) 2) Celtic (La Tne and Hallstatt) 3) Viking 4) Stone Age 5) Roman
I mostly stuck to periods I have a local relation to, although that is no must for my partner. Yes, and Viking is not local to my place, but I love their artworks so much and my kids really go for the helmets and axes Grin

I googled the Sutton Hoo stuff, and its unbelievable! All the influences and styles! And the interesting thing is, the Alemans that are first on my list origin from the same region as the Anglo-Saxons, and in some pieces it so shows! (That's what they call the merowingian influence). And the Scandinavian animal bandwork style, aah, so beautiful!
Has someone a link to that AS hoard? Is it from the same period?

Edit: I found a fotostream:

gotta go and melt down over the pics now...

Oh wow...there's no way I'll have time to do this swap. I did medieval historical reenactment for almost 20 yrs and I'm an amateur anthropologist at heart.

If there's another round, I'm in! Smiley

I pulled out my art history textbook from college today. It's ready to go. Cheesy I can't wait to do some research! <3 <3 <3 I hope this swap will require me to go downtown to the art galleries.

   I am such a dweeb. Smiley

I'm still trying to decide on my five periods/persons. Someone's going to be skunked, no matter what. Do I keep Elizabeth I or ditch her? If I keep Elizabeth I AND Boudicca, is that too many "English" queens? Right now I have to have ancient Egypt just to keep it from being totally Anglocentric.
Anyway I was leafing though a magazine today (while watching the series Rome on History TV-Thanksgivingus Maximus) and saw a type of stuffed doll, slightly different than the kind I usually make. So I might make an Elizabeth I one of those and get it out of my system.

I don't know if they've properly documented the new AS find yet, but here is a link with a little film with good pictures.

Mayhaps you could do what I did...I specified 18th century france but then in my note at the end put that I'm a total Francophile and heart all things French from all times. So maybe put Elizabeth and leave a note at the end saying you love all celtic things?

I'm back after a long hiatus. Not doing any big swaps right now but feel free to message me for small ones and supply exchanges. I have a bunch of fabric that I'd like to swap for different supplies! 

Also, I have a pintrest now Smiley

Okay, I whittled it down to five, and I'm sticking to it.
1. Medieval England (11th-12C)
2. Eighteenth dynasty Egypt
3. Boudicca
4. Cistercians
5. the Latin Language (medieval or Roman, I don't care)

It's a little medieval heavy, but such is life.

Ooooh...your post reminded me that I should have put the Borgia family in mine.  So much intrigue.
   aethelberga, I'm totally jealous that you got to see the Sutton Hoo stuff in person! I did a 20 page paper on it in college. I visited Pompeii back in 2001...and that was my only brush with real live history. Cheesy Memories.

I'm very tempted by this one... I have a degree in Archaeology, in Near Eastern studies (Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Mesopotamia) and took some ancient Roman and Greece classes too...  Very tempting, but will I have the time???  Maybe I'll get my 2 current swaps crafted early...
