The current banner image works as a holding picture, but isn't the most appropriate - can we consider any long term alternatives?Metabaronic (talk) 17:30, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Perhaps an image of the helmet from Sutton Hoo? Most iconic Anglo-Saxon image I can think of. Unfortunately I have no expertise in the area of image editing.Revcasy (talk) 21:08, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
  • I like the Sutton Hoo image, I just added what we had. Change is really easy. Sadads (talk) 11:46, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Is there an image of it without rights issues - from what I've seen there are fixed permissions in place.Metabaronic (talk) 12:55, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
  • The image on the right has appropriate licensing. Sadads (talk) 14:32, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Nothing square-on?Metabaronic (talk) 14:45, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
There is one but the lighting is bad and this would look better icon size (see readjusted picture size vs other), the third is actually much better I think. The problem with 1 and 2 though, is that they are replicas. They look much better though and are more distinct on a smaller size.Sadads (talk) 15:24, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
They have a replica on display at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery as part of the Staffordshire Hoard exhibit. Its on public display so I should be able to get a picture this week. I think it's even against a black background.Metabaronic (talk) 15:30, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
Three is fine though, both for licensing, size and quality. I think we should transition to that, its a pretty good shot and looks dramatic. Sadads (talk) 15:35, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
A right-facing image is preferable as for a position on the left of the panel. Another suggestion would be
King Alfred, Wantage.JPG

Then lets do #1 for right now?Sadads (talk) 17:46, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Fine by me.Metabaronic (talk) 21:32, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
I used #3 on Template:WikiProject Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms Sidebar because space and size limitations, but replace all the others with #1. Sadads (talk) 21:58, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
