    Lightbulb Illustrations from the Harley Psalter, England, 1st half of the 11th century

    Illustrations from the Harley Psalter, England, early 11th century
    Harley Psalter, f2r, Psalm 2
    Harley Psalter, f4r, Psalm 7
    Harley Psalter, f12r, Psalm 19
    Harley Psalter, f65v, Psalm 123
    Harley Psalter, f69r, Psalm 133
    Harley Psalter, f73v, David and Goliath

    Although the psalter was illustrated in England it was copied from the Utrecht Psalter which was brought to England c.1000 so it does not necessarily show Anglo-Saxon costume. Nevertheless, the Goliath figure has often been used to illustrate an Anglo-Saxon armoured warrior.

    If those illustrations are accurate, the old Roman army would have mauled the new comers.

    Romans had withdrawn their legion before the Anglo-Saxons came.
