Bag handles

Nice and decent recreation made by Náttmál.

After the conversation with Devin Martin, the new member of Marobud, I decided to translate the text about bag handles (bag frames or bag closures) from Haithabu. I added another pictures to this translation, so we can see that this type of bags was more widespead in Scandinavia. Thanks to attached selection of iconography, we can realize that bag were necessary accessory of both men and women. The following PDF file includes only leather or woolen bags fitted up with wooden or bone/antler handles.

The original text, “Taschenbügel aus Haithabu”.

English translation, with more pictures.

Czech translation of the English version.

For technical manual, please see this document made by Náttmál.
