I love the grain on this beautiful Scottish deerskin satchel. 
This is the most accurate interpretation I have made so far of the early medieval period bag, found at Loch Glashan Crannog site here in Scotland. Loch Glashan is on the west coast, making the bag of Dalriadan origin rather than Pictish. 
The original is huge, I got close to it with this but was slightly limited by the size of the hide but it's still a good representation of just how big the bag is. The original was made if deerskin. So I have used this special Scottish red deerskin, traditionally acorn tanned by the woodland tannery in Fife.

Chips and combat boots. Almost finished reaming 350 1/2” holes to 9/16” to be riveted. Got to continue to make progress.

A house dating back to iron age

Great finds today. Really large sherds of Early Iron Age pottery from an enclosure ditch. These were last above ground over 2000 years ago. I’m busy digging up the roundhouse, but only a few small sherds.

Making a historic Scottish bag, from local leather tanned in a historical method, has taught me a lot about the leatherworking practices from early medieval Scotland. I love my job 😁

The beginnings of a new project, Ive just finished forming this iron-age spear head, now all i need to do is give it a point and sharpen it. At that point it'll be ready for a handle. #ironage #spear #blacksmithing #smith #smithing #spear #spearhead #metalwork #weapon #weaponry #medieval
Kallebystenen, in Tanumshede.
It is dated back to at least 400 AD, written in Elder Futhark, predates the Viking age. 
Although having stood the test of time, it is hard to decipher completely. Researchers have found that it mentions some wizard, or man of magic.
It now stands across the road from the local church. .

📚BOOK REVIEW📚In Search of the Picts is an in depth study of the elusive Pictish tribes of Iron Age Scotland. Elizabeth Sutherland takes the reader on a journey from the tribes' Pictish roots to their ultimate defeat at the hands of the Scots and the Norsemen🍂I really enjoyed this book; moreso I think because the fantasy writer Juliet Marillier based her Bridei Chronicles on the first Pictish king and his druid, so having read those books too, I recognised a lot of the names and places. My favourite chapters were The First Symbol Stones, which dives into the meanings of the symbols depicted on the standing stones and Pictish Language and the Arts🍁There are plenty of diagrams, photos and maps too. If you can only have one book on the Picts, then this is the one I would recommend you buy, however, it is an old book, so I imagine there have been many Pictish discoveries unearthed since it was published🍁.

This teeny tiny, but essentially fully functioning, warp weighted loom is about the same size as a sheet of copier paper. We made it for a museum a few years ago and I've had it back for a new warp. Tying all the thread heddles is the worst bit of dressing a loom this size!

Oh how i love this picture! Find me and look at my face. Even it's blurry it'll tell you a lot. 😅
Early in the morning it turned to be a road trip and i visited lots of spots during the day.
Here i was in a place called #parcodeiguerrieri which was inhabited almost 3000 years ago. 😮 and this is a hut which dates back the same period even the one you see is a replica. I tried to channel my inner warrior but here i look more like a desperate prisoner. 😄 #puglia #italy #messapia #ironage

Stora gravhögar. (Skultuna 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4)
-
About 1 km north of Skultuna there are two especially large burial mounds (gravhögar) and two smaller ones. They like just next to the river Svartån in an important place where an ancient road passed through the bridge here. There is a bridge here today called Jädra bro and nearby are the remains of an older one from the Middle Ages. There was surely a bridge here long before that because the remains of an ancient holloway (hålväg) continue on both sides of the river. A Holloway is a path that has been used for so long that the road has sunken down below the surrounding ground level. The burial mounds would have had a prime location for travelers passing buy either by road or river.
-
The largest mound is 30 meters in diameter and 3 meters high. I placed my backpack on the mound in one of the photos to show how large it is. The second largest mound is 23 meters in diamter and 2.5 meters high but absoulutely covered by foliage so it was hard to get a good photo of it. They would be categorized under "large mounds" (Storhögar) which are mounds more than 20m in diameter. The two other mounds are much smaller and are 0.5 and 0.9 meters in height. It is unusual that they have not been cleaned up better because there are not so many mounds this large in Västmanland and the people buried here surely held great power.

Blue veiled
.
Wild sloes,
Spellbound by Blackthorn,
Mabon,
Eryri
.
. 
The Blackthorn (sloe, spiny plum, wishing thorn, faery tree, dark mother of the woods) - an ancient, native pioneer tree species, abundant in the moist oak mossy woodlands of the Celtic West of the British Isles, is an especially sacred tree in Celtic lore - a tree of profound magic, a tree with a rich mythic and folklore tradition in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and the Isle of Man.
.
In ancient Ireland, the Blackthorn was known as Straif - likely the origin of the word 'strife'. Straif is one of sacred Chieftain Trees of the Ogham. Druids considered the Blackthorn's contorted formation, stunted gnarly growth and viciously thorny twigs to be a symbol of strife and suffering - a portent of challenges ahead, but also embodying the promise brought by overcoming challenges.
.
In Gaelic mythology (Irish, Scottish and Manx), the Blackthorn is connected to Cailleach, a divine hag with both light and dark aspects, a creator, weather and ancestor deity; the Celtic goddess of Winter who emerges at Samhain, taking over from the Summer goddess, Brigid. Cailleach is depicted as a blue veiled old woman with a raven on one shoulder. Her blackthorn staff is used to summon wild Winter storms.
.
Sloes, the blue berries of the Blackthorn, have been found buried in a straw-lined Iron Age pit (c. 3400 years old), near Glastonbury; evidence of ripening and preserving the bitter sloes. Celts observed that the tree produced some of the sweetest berries among the sacred tribe of trees - but only once they have been bitten by a sharp frost to take away their bitterness, which partly accounts for the tree's symbolism of the very best coming only out of preparedness for the inevitability of death and suffering and an understanding of what life and the Otherworld means to us; a process which brings the very best of promise'.

19th of September, 2018. Dun Beag Broch, Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Dun Beag Broch is a fort dated back to the Iron Age. The wind had really kicked in by this time— not pictured is me nearly being blown off the top of the wall.
