so you're fluent in Proto-Germanic? Cool! do you know any old Norse?
I've been thinking that someday I want to make a historical epic film about the Germanic tribes and have the dialogue be in Proto-Germanic and Proto-Norse with English. and to keep it authentic, i think I'll use German and Scandinavian actors but most of the cast i want to be made up of unknowns and stuff. Of course that'll probably be years away and i'll probably won't be a filmmaker...
here's a historical fiction story i wrote heavily based on a documentary i saw. i wrote it in German with a Latin sentence and a few Danish sentences fav.me/d7qyajb
Hey thre! Great gallery! You guys sure have some knowledge in ancient cultures. I was wondering what was used for the shoes' outsole. I saw some nails on the bottom of a medieval shoe in your gallery..somewhere. Sо did they have(use) caoutchouc in mid ages? What about the iron age...I guess they used leather padding only. And one more thing- where can I buy a hauberk (riveted, flat)? I saw many on ebay but their prices range a lot and I dont know which one is reasonable and which one is a joke- I dont wanna end up with smth that looks like an unwoven basket of wire. Thank you !
