Gripping beasts

Decorative bargeboards are going up on the gable ends and above the doors of the Saxon longhall. Together with Mike’s beasts, they will add a fearsome touch and keep away evil spirits. The designs are mainly from Anglo-Saxon metalwork, including the ferocious duck/goat/dragon/hippo beast, which is sadly not mentioned in the literature.
