This month the book “The Sword in Anglo-Saxon England – from the 5th to 7th century” was released. It features one of my photos on the cover and therefore marks my first featured photo on a book cover.
Featured on the photo is one of the editors, Paul Mortimer, sporting his recreation of the outfit and gear of the burial from Sutton Hoo: King Raedwald. I took the photo during an event in Uppåkra, Sweden, in late spring 2017. Both Paul Mortimer and Matt Bunker are part of Wulfheodenas, a living history society dedicated to the 6th and 7th century aristocracy and warriors of northern Europe.
