About this blog

Welcome to Suvia’s Letters!

You will find arti­cles and posts about Merovin­gian mate­r­ial cul­ture, both orig­i­nal, and point­ing at other places on the web­verse. I will post stuff from pre-Roman to Car­olin­gian, and pretty much any­thing that I feel like posting.

I recently com­pleted my doc­toral stud­ies at the OSU Depart­ment of Design and Human Envi­ron­ment (with a minor in Cul­tural Anthro­pol­ogy) with a dis­ser­ta­tion titled, Hon­ored val­ues and val­ued objects : the Soci­ety for Cre­ative Anachro­nism.

About the time aca­d­e­mic jobs were dry­ing up in my field, the 2004 Indone­sian tsunami and 2005 Kat­rina hap­pened. So many lives were lost that could have been saved if they had been edu­cated as to what to do when nature throws a curve ball at us. Social sci­ence and edu­ca­tion are vital to any robust haz­ard mit­i­ga­tion pro­gram. I ended up work­ing for Ore­gon Office of Emer­gency Man­age­ment as the Geo­logic Haz­ards Pro­gram Coor­di­na­tor. But my love of tex­tiles, mate­r­ial cul­ture and those naughty nasty Merovin­gians remains so I made this blog to keep my jonesing at bay.

I hope you will check things out and let your friends know about the awe­some infor­ma­tion you find here. And go buy books using the links to Ama­zon! Because you know you want to!

    Hello.

    It was unfor­tu­nate that we couldn’t attend Egil’s #40 and instead do the much shorter drive to an event in Quincy area. It was a pleas­ant event but noth­ing is like Egils. Since we cross path not often enough I do check your web­site now and again. Osric con­tin­ues on with his inter­ests and just recently put a web­site together. I hope you have the time to check it out and enjoy it.

      Good morn­ing!
      I hope you had a good time at the local event. :D

      Sadly, I haven’t had time to do much with this blog lately. I am work­ing on a post about the Dal­mat­ics of St. Ambrose (4-5th cen­tury), but the trans­lat­ing is going sooooowwwwww.

      What is the url for Osric’s website?
