Hey, everyone, I was watching the old silent vampire movie, Nosferatu, and I was watching the hero packing his bag for a trip.
He's using some sort of snapsack!
Now the movie was made in Germany in 1922 and intends to illustrate events occurring in 1838. The costumes look pretty accurate as far as I can tell. Maybe this is indeed what travelers used in those days.
Having a little trouble embedding the Youtube URL her at the moment, so here is the link:

There are no safe paths in this part of the world. Remember you are over the Edge of the Wild now, and in for all sorts of fun wherever you go.

Neat find Kortoso!
it looks to me rather like a market wallet, but of a more boxy construction than the usual "envelope" style that seems to have entered 18th c. reenacting over the last decade. How curious!
Persona: Aerlinneth, Dúnedain of Amon Lendel c. TA 3010.
