Mostly, these are based around general themes of "AS life" -- which are
extrapolated from a variety of sources (be that what Paul and I know
ourselves, what we can extract from other members of ŠEG, what we pick up
from reading...) The present edition "Fyrd" probably owes something to the
Osprey volume, plus rummaging around in Canute's Laws, plus the general
ethos of, say, "The Battle of Maldon", together with some recent work I was
doing on the ASC. Cutha's habit of pulling his arms out of his tunic when he
is hot, for example, (effectively exactly what a boy today does with his
t-shirt) is based on an illustration I found in the Harley Psalter
(reproduced in Sally Crawford's "Childhood in AS England) -- where an AS boy
is shown as doing exactly that.
