The Marketplace at Birka

A Quiet Corner
for an Unquiet Household ++

Our thanks go to our Wanderstamm house mates for making our annual pilgrimage to the great marketplace at Birka most enjoyable, and to Lady Camille and her parents for hosting us for the weekend!

Max & Mickel


Further, my humble gratitude belongs to those responsible for my induction into the Order of the Sagittarius, to Master Edward for the incredible scroll, to Master Julien for the fine enameled badge, and to all who kept the secret. Thank you all; it was a magnificent gift.
