Having a great time at the festival again this year.

Showed my nephew the town in Viking gear, saw my first planetarium style guide to the stars and Viking navigation, bought a lovely penannular brooch from Cezary and some Curious Works sprang fingerless mittens and heard very interesting lectures on the Scar boat burial and Vale of York Hoard. I loved the fact that the Scar C10th comb turned out to be virtually identical to the one I pulled from my pouch. Come to think of it, I got that from Cezary too.

Tonight we attended the Minster to hear the York choir Enkelit fill it with beautiful Finnish songs and had the pleasure of seeing my old comrade Niall of the Jorvik Vikingr. A good man and the first person I asked 'so how do you become a re-enactor then?'

A very good day :-)

We're coming over in October. Our schedule is Wychurst, British Museum and then up to York. All the stories of people heading there this weekend are driving me nuts!

Brilliant news! Have you seen our fair city before? Perhaps I can give you the tour?

You most certainly may! We'd be greatly appreciative. We're depending greatly on the kindness of...well, not stra ngers but many folk we haven't met in the flesh. Thanks! I talk to Kim andClare--whom we have--next week to wortk out primary details. In the meantime, Julie can't stop smiling :)

And I've never been to York, only London and Milton Keen (don't ask). Julie lived in London for a few monhs ce nturies ago, but I don't know that she got out of London at all!
