Thank you for Horncastle boar's head, "a tiny but interesting slice of Anglo-Saxon history. Its rich construction of silver, gold, and garnets, only hints at the likely richness of the helmet it once adorned; even the richest Anglo-Saxon helmets yet known, from Sutton Hoo and Staffordshire, have more rudimentary crest terminals than the Horncastle fragment. This 40 mm (1.6 in)-long fragment was purchased for £15,000, and is now on display in Lincolnshire"! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:44, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Jennifer Foster is an English scholar of prehistoric and medieval archaeology. She teaches at the University of Reading, and has published three monographs, one on Iron Age and Roman boar figurines, one on the Lexden tumulus, and one an introduction to European archaeology before the Roman conquest, based on the collection in the British Ashmolean Museum. In a 1995 article she argued that Iron Age metalsmiths in Britain might have been itinerant rather than having a fixed abode, and would produce groups of goods at single sites like Gussage All Saints, Dorset.

That looks great, thanks very much for that; it's been on my to-do list for far too long. I'm currently making some revisions, but will have it live shortly. I also have a list of her publications which she sent me in 2017, so hopefully we can come up with something that's reasonably complete. --Usernameunique (talk) 17:28, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
