Some Viking Shields – the start of a collection.
I am gathering information for Dwayne to utilise for creating shields to hang within the UWGB Viking House, and now I am also sending the package to Professor Katie Walkner, of UWGB Manitowoc for a project one of her student is creating.
There will be plenty of great images and links out there which I don’t know, and I would be glad to hear from you the reader.
Many of the action images come to us care of Eric De Bernardi of Vanaheim Vikings who are a part of Vikings UK. Lots more images and info on their page – https://www.facebook.com/vanaheimyork/
The Regia Anglorum image comes to us courtesy of Līga Supantīsaūli Gūlbs.
I am proud to be a member of Vanaheim the York University Viking group. Which makes me think of connections and affiliations. Wouldn’t it be great if each shield we display has a story to link it to others we are connected to. Toby of Balagard – Viking-age Finland made this suggestion.
Tim of River Ravens also suggested it would be good to have their image on a shield to show our connection. https://www.facebook.com/FMRiverRavens/
Eric recommends contacting Roland Warzecha, aka Dimicator c/o – https://www.facebook.com/Dimicator-266934476773420/
Eric also thinks that Roland will probably direct you all to Asfolk Viking Martial Arts in Minnesota. https://www.asfolk.com/
My great chieftain Georg Hansen of Njardarheimr Viking town, Gudvangen, Norway sent me some real good links too.
and an interesting blog post
Sigourney of Origami Llama has offered to paint, in particular a Viking-stylised wolf or ouroboros. – https://www.facebook.com/theorigamillama/
Professor Heidi Sherman is also working on some designs.
