Anglo-Scandinavian Golden Age

Anglo-Scandinavian Golden Age

Only golden bract with something like a warrior from Aars N. Jutland. But note the long right leg

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 Romans meet the Erils
