Monsterpunsad pouch

I see in the guide that there is a pouch called the 'Monsterpunsad bag' can anyone direct me to the archaeological find on which this reconstruction is based please? Many thanks from Russ Scott

Do you mean this bag? ... aska1b.jpg

If you do, there are no archaeological finds supporting a bag of this type. If you are going for a historically accurate reconstruction you should avoid this bag.

Best regards,

Hello Ville, many thanks for your reply.
Yes this is the pouch in question.
I am writing a guide to 'Viking Age' Bags, Pouches and Purses.
I have never seen an authentic pouch like the one in this guide.
Thank you for reassuring me!
I like the pouches on your site by the way, and the boat!

As far as I know there is a bag from Rösta Ås, Jämtland and from Birka. They probably looked a lot more like a hungarian tarsoly than the 'Monsterpunsad bag' with two loops and a D-shaped body. Of course the fittings on the lid would be individual instead of a full plate but the shape and construction would be similar.
