Anglo-Scandinavian Golden Age
We find their world order and myths on long golden horns and on nearly thousand golden medallions and golden bracts. In Roman sources their nobility was called Heruli. On rune stones they wrote EK ERILAR. Early Anglo-Saxon laws tell about their nobility and sense of law. They were early Vikings and all our ancestors
This is an electronic book about the Anglo-Scandinavians and Erils. I by principle use the name Eril since the name Heruli was given by the Romans that also called them barbarians. They served the Roman Empire and did the dirty work. They do not deserve any invective. An old proverb for judges tells that enemies should not be witnesses. Still I use the Roman barbarian sources but weigh their words on gold scale.

The victor usually writes the history and we have got only the Roman version. The Celtic world knew about Greeks and Romans long before the other way around. Here another view from the northern Celtic viewpoint. My ancestors were not barbarians!

The Vi was forbidden by law when Christianity got the monopoly of keeping track of time. That was the end of maybe more than 5000 years tradition and custom with the local Vi as sanctified place for law, order and time keeping. There is no magic in the Vi.
