Hallo, og velkommen! Starting a blog by immediately jumping into content always seems awkward and strange to me, so here is my obligatory inaugural introductory post.
I am Lady Mathilde Huldsdotter of Mynydd Seren, a small shire located in the Kingdom of the Midrealm. If you are familiar with the Society for Creative Anachronism, you will know immediately what this is all about; if not, I am, in essence, an occasional historical reenactor. Specifically, I portray the persona of a spinner, weaver, and dyer living in Gotland (specifically the city of Visby), some time between the 10th and 11th centuries.
I am starting this blog, mostly in the hopes of creating an easier way for me to compile and keep track of all of the information I use to educate myself on learning more about my persona. That of course doesn’t restrict the audience to solely myself; in fact, I would be more than thrilled to share my academic journey with you!
Most of the information on this blog will be related to my fields of interest, namely fiber arts and other information that may be relevant to my persona. However, I will also be posting other interesting tidbits on Vikings. I hope you can find something of interest here.
Yours in service,
Lady Mathilde Huldsdotter, AoA
