Greetings from Solveig!
> I have a concern about my short, red hair.Don't worry about it. Some folks buy wigs, but you need not worry
about your hair. You will run across all sorts of people who do not
conform to physical stereotypes for their culture of interest. Just
last week, I attended a delightful class about T'ang dynasty makeup
taught by someone who is mundanely and African American. I've run
across African American Celts, Vikings, Normans, &c in the Society
and even one Afro-Canadian who pioneered study of sub-Saharan African
women in pre-modern Europe. I'm still waiting for blond haired blue
eyed folks to decide that the Central African Kingdom or the Upper
Nile Egyptian Dynasties are really really interesting. However, even
that may change what with there being a Kenyan-American president in
the White House.

I am in search of help to locate writing on how to produce historically accurate images. From everything from the type of paper and ink, to how to make a seal, what is used as the red ink? for the seal, symbolism, etc.
