A study released last week shows that up to 40 per cent of our DNA may be from Germanic ancestors, and not the Vikings, thanks to the Anglo-Saxon migrations here in 450-600AD. The project is particularly interesting because it would seem that our genetic make-up bares out those old traditions and clichés about how we relate to each other. So the age-old rivalries between Devon and Cornwall – take for example the bitter wars fought over whether you put jam or cream on a scone first...

Woman's Anglo Saxon dress (from the origional website:) This dress is entirely hand sewn. The underdress is linen, the overdress is woolen. The belt is tablet wowen in linen. Maybe it should not be wrapped twice around the waist, but I like it this way very much. The pouch is of wool, with an embroidered beast from the Bayeaux tapestry (woolen threads in natural colors and hibiscus).
