Anglo-Saxon Burial Mounds

Anglo-Saxon Burial Mounds by Steve Pollington
Wulfheodenas is a living history society which seeks to recreate the military aristocracy, their warrior retinues and the meadhall culture of the 6-7th century Anglo-Saxons and the contemporary Northern European cultures. ‘Wulfheodenas’ is the Old English equivalent of the Old Norse ‘ulfheðnar’ meaning ‘wolf-coats’. Our emblem is derived from the design on a die for making decorative plates, found at Fen Drayton, Cambridgeshire. The die depicts a weapon-bearing wolf-headed warrior and is one of a small corpus of similarly executed figures known from Northern Europe.
