Interesting...hope you get it off the ground...it'd be interesting to see someone putting Scotii or Dessi kit together.

If you're interested, I've got the finds reports from Lagore Crannog which includes some weaponry and domestic kit from the period you're interested in...got some other stuff on 5th/6th C Irish weapons too.

Yes please, any info would be greatly appreciated. As you may know i've recently had a look around the post Roman period and i'm impressed with what i see, on the whole small groups with excellent kit. With the Scotti i think as theres no armour (possibly helmets) it enables the reenactor to concentrate on the finer points of the kit as theres less shiney baubles to turn the eye. I hope i find some like minded individuals.

Although if you went for Irish foederati (thinking of Rance's paper on the subject of the Attacotti Irish federates in the 4th/5thC) or their 2nd or 3rd generation descendants then you'd increase the scope of available shiny things enormously.


Call yourself Cunorix and you can even be in charge of the garrison at Wroxeter. :wink:

This is true, but they would after 2 or 3 generations have been throughly Romanised. Doesn't look like theres any takers anyway, i'll still get the kit together as a project, i'll look for a local group of the period to play with...

8) Now that sounds interesting to do, (bookshelf straining under weight of reference material for that time period & before.)
