Tarsoly Viking bag
It was time to upgrade some of my accessories. This tarsoly is based on a find from Rösta in Jämtland Sweden. The fittings are not from Birka (as most people seem to think). 

Made in cow and goat skin/leather and waxed linen thread. The front is covered in salmon skin (not snake). 
Hi guys.

Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. I've been struggling to find time for both job, Hervor and private life, you know how things can get. I still try to answer all notes I get and reply to comments, so don't be afraid to write me :)

I did a post like this some years ago but I had so many new friends here so I decided to do another one. For you guys who has been with me for some time some of these songs might already be familiar. 

Brilliant song by a very talented group. Already a classic among viking reenactors.

Per O G Runberg
A very talented and skilled musician and lecturer that our group have had the pleasure of listening to many times. For those of you guys who use spotify you can find him there. Per is playing an old traditional instrument called "tagelharpa" which is basically a harp stringed with horse hair. Findings of parts of this kind of harp (mostly the bridge) has been found on several locations in Scandinavia. We don't know for sure that the harp was used with a bow but it seems reasonable to amuse that it might have. It's a wonderful instrument. This song is called "Björndansen", "The dance of the bear"

Gny - Ærlig Pæl - Herr Sinklars Vise
Although this is based on a traditional folk song it is not really a viking song. I still think it has the right mood to it.

Let me know what you guys think :)

Hi, how are you?

I've finally begun recently the creation of a reenactment costume.

Some parts of my costume aren't finished yet (wrap leggings are cheap, I will buy better stuff soon for example) or are missing actually.

May I ask you one or two questions please?

Moreover, I've bought a few interesting books recently too hehe

Have a good day!

It's good to hear that you are coming along well with your gear. :)

Ask away. It might take some time for me to answer but eventually I will :)
