Hello again and some gear photos

Postby RecycledViking on Mon Jul 20, 2009 11:44 pm

Hello again, Living History members! This is Annie the Yank back from a few months' hiatus. For those who don't know me I used to be in MedRen but now I'm about 3200 miles away and that makes me sad :cry: For those who do know me, I've graduated with a Bachelor's in History and Medieval Studies and I'm now beginning a Master's in Medieval Studies at University of Connecticut. I almost came back to UCC for a PhD but being able to drive home eventually won out. Unfortunately this means I'm out of the Irish re-enactment for a few more years. But I'm about to get involved with a (formerly Regia Anglorum) group named Hurstwic and I thought I'd re-kindle the LH.ie connection.
Anyway I've been busy whilst applying for grad schools and writing a thesis on the Irish influence on medieval Icelandic identity...thought I would share some photos of my Dark Age stuff.
They aren't as perfectly authentic as I'd like them to be. But they're still my first real gear and I'm proud to finally own (instead of begging and borrowing) some nice stuff. I'm confident that I know most everything "wrong" with them though I would of course appreciate some gentle critiquing.
There's also some photos of a 1917 Remington bayonet, I believe genuine.
When I get a chance I will also put up some photos of my spearheads and the lovely decorations my boyfriend burnt into them.
Hooray!

Hi Annie,
Nice painting job on your shield.
It sure beats mine on my mini Irish style shield.
