can we have a thread about 6th - 9th century germanic culture? I'm fascinated by this time and would love to hear anything you'd like to teach me about the anglians, saxons, vendels and any other group from that period.

no one really knows who the hell any of these people were because they are not related culturally or genetically to anyone today.
Nor to anyone in recent years.
They are mythology tier.
Think about it this way, if genetically you get reshuffled every generation, how long will it take until you cease to resemble a fixed point in your genetic line?
You are somewhat your parents, barely your grandparents, marginally your great grandparents and are not at all practically unrelated to your great great grandparents.
Think of it the same way with cultural trends.
some traditions survive, but then some don't.
Saxons used to wear Seaxes in their boots, then they started wearing them as belts, then they stopped wearing them entirely.
Something so useful and then ceremonial was lost within a little over 100 years, now imagine what has been lost in over 1,200 years.
germanics and slavs forced finno-ugric peoples out of their homelands
Please continue with these pictures though.
I only have one more and it's not very good quality
I love helmets with face-masks, it just screams warlord.

I can get scans of any kind of artbook for Mega Man, Front Mission, Metal Gear Solid, or any nerd shit. Yet I've never seen proper collection of scans for these books.
good shit is hard to find.
What do you want to know?
