929c.e. Götland, Town of Visby
I manage a profitabletrading enterprise started by my 1st husband; Einarr Frøbiornson. Hewas killed trying to
raid trade along the Volga River.Our son, Njal being ever so much better at swordplay trading than hisfather, made it back to Visby with chests full of silver coins, silks from theEast and other exotic wares.
I manage alarge stead where the farming of sheep, cattle and assorted poultry is done by our
thralls farm workers. I, along with the ladies of my household take careof the spinning, weaving and dying of cloth for fine clothing. As well, the makingof cheese, skyr and buttermilk, bread, ale and mead fall under my watchful eye.
I eventuallyremarried, this time to a skáld…Julian theFoolhardy is what he calls himself (he met Njal in Kiev, although he hails froma place called York far to the west…he never did explain why he was there….),and foolhardy he is, for he has traveled to the East with Njal on a “trading”expedition. It has been a year since they have left and I am left to wonder ifthey are safe. I hope to be reunited with them soon!
I have not registered name or device as of yet, but I am sure I want a wild boar, as far as a favourite insect...well, that would be a honey bee, as for flowers, I think woad flowers and madder plant/root would be my favourites.
