Within The Viking Age Compendium you will find our ongoing research into the material culture of Viking Age Britain. The Compendium details the kinds of items and clothing worn by people both living or possibly visiting Britain between 800 and 1100AD. Currently our concentration is on [[Wargear]], [[Clothing]] and [[Jewellery]]. Going forwards we hope to also add articles on Viking Age crafts as well as everyday items found in the home.<br>
The articles found here are largely works in progress and so we have rated them on a scale out of 5 with [[Completion Rating|1 star]] being a planned article for the future and [[Completion Rating|5 stars]] being an article completed to the best of our current knowledge. If you are aware of any information that we have missed or any errors we have made, please feel free to contact us at []. <br>
The Compendium is divided into two main areas. The first is our collection of Articles, some of these are more finished than others. The Articles present information from finds, art and literature as well as a discussion section that summarises published opinions and theories.<br>
The second area is our Catalogues. Here you will find lists of finds and locations. We have attempted to include web links and bibliography information for every item to assist with your own research.<br>
We hope that you find the information here helpful.<br>
