<<I've decided on a name Angelo-Saxon from 10th century... AElfwyn. How did
the Saxon's do bynames? Can anyone lead me to a good resource? Also, any good
links to garb from this culture. I Googled but didn't find much... Any help
The absolutely best naming source on the web is the Academy of Saint Gabriel
at _http://www.s-gabriel.org_ (http://www.s-gabriel.org) ; also the Medieval
Naming Guides at _http://www.panix.com/~mittle/names/_
(http://www.panix.com/~mittle/names/) which I believe are linked to the St. Gabriel site. Either
or both of those should have a resource for constructing Saxon bynames on
them, as well as lists of documented names.
As far as Anglo-Saxon garb, there is a British re-enactment group called
Regia Anglorum that has a website chock full of all sorts of info about
clothing , material goods, etc from this culture (as well as Vikings in England and
Normans) during the period 850-1100. You can check it out at
_http://www.regia.org_ (http://www.regia.org) These guys are serious re-enactors who
frequently get used for film work and educational work at British historical sites,
and they know their stuff.
