Leitrim Training Weekend

... (don’t be offended if they shout at you ) The clocks will be taken down in the house so no-one can skip off to bed because ‘it’s getting late’. Remember folks – Time is a human invention and gods are not subject to it, it is subject to them. So when ‘bed-time’ rolls around, ask yourself: ...

Re: Warped Horn

... forum, but I can't because I don't know the appropriate period! I've been seeing, both online and at Renaissance Faires (go on, shudder!), bowls, plates, spoons, and other non-horn-shaped objects made out of real horn. I know that 'when heated to extremes [it] will go back to its natural shape. ...

Re: First foray into leatherwork.

... simple repairs.” PouchIona.jpg I don't have a copy of Leather from Medieval Svendborg. There were pouches there but that's 12th-16thC so still too late for Viking. I remember being told once that there were pouches found at either Birka or Hedeby that were either full circles with drawstring holes ...

Re: First foray into leatherwork.

... a go at making something. Its a Viking pouch (I hope), it took about 10 hours from design to completion. I didn’t have a pattern so I used 2 soup plates and a ruler and kind of made it up as I went along. I was wondering what people think about it as far as design flaws and authenticity goes. Their ...

Re: knives and things

Hello John! As far as I can tell, most knives until the late medieval are like that - short tangs that are rammed into the handle. Any idea when that started to change ? Did Romans have.. more advanced knives ? The Romans seem to have used scale tangs ...

On this day...

... amongst re-enactors to concentrate on the archeology from an era and to ignore the history. (I know some re-enactors who could tell you what a late C12th norman wore, ate and fought with, but have never heard of Hugh De Lacy.) Anyway, the idea of this thread is for people to post info on events ...

Re: First foray into leatherwork.

... - certainly a lot better than my first effort at a pouch! A few questions: ~ you have eused blanket stitch on the edge. I think that it is a very late period stitch. A simple whip stitch would have worked just as well. ~ What is the cord/twine made from ~ is the thread linen or synthetic? If you ...
