Burh Construction by EthicallyChallenged Burh Construction by EthicallyChallenged
The construction of the first Tesco in Wessex, Britain, in the late 9th century. A union representative, depicted wearing a coppergate helmet and a red cloak, looks on, as a supervisor instructs a construction worker about the location of the future cart-park. On the left, a Tesco employee is testing a new type of shopping trolley. In the background, two mounted scouts are keeping an eye out for any signs of Scandinavian invaders (IKEA). Painted for Medieval Warfare magazine.

But - surely Aethelwulf and Offa had allowed construction of a chain of Tescos all along the Welsh March as early as the late C8th? Or were those perhaps Finefares?

Again, a simply splendid illustration.
