Towards the sunlit uplands

Steady progress on the Great March Forward is being made by the stalwart band of volunteers, this week inspired by a surfeit of cakes, courtesy of Lee. The luxurient growth of the hedge has been tamed, the new peices of Viking furniture finished off and oiled and mural painting continued in the longhall. More mosaic was completed and, true to the original, is best seen from a distance, slightly squinting. Plans are being laid for a replica of the beech chair from the Oseberg boat burial, to complement the other pieces in the longhall bedroom and because the numbers of 9th century chairs from northern Europe are very small (possibly just the one?). If anyone has a beech tree going spare, please get in contact.
