Welcome to the digital chronicles of THL Astridr Vigaskegg, a Scadian living in southern Aethelmearc.

Persona: A Viking-age woman from ~1040AD eastern Sweden, but I wear generic Viking garb and whatever else suits my fancy. “Vigaskegg” literally means “battle-beard” and in context of a byname means “ready for the fight.” I’m very interested in 16th century Germany and Italy, 15th century Germany and France, and the pre-13th century Varangian guard.

A&S Interests: Garb research, sewing, long-arm cross-stitch, embroidery, recipes, feast-planning, illumination, runic alphabets, Old Norse and Old Icelandic, venison

Martial Interests: Heavy fighting, marshaling
