It's done, done, done!

Did the oiling today [linseed oil]

I used common box for the "moustache" as palm branches are a little hard to get here.

Finished the "spikes" yesterday, did an eye-job today. Just some final sandpapering and oiling left to be done.

Heathohlaewe - word of the day

The MS today: heathohlaewe - just hea is left

Zupitza's autotype - late 19th century
hlaewe - barely readable

heathohlaewe - digitally restored [Kiernan-Electronic Beowulf]
