Haymaking in June. Upper part of an Anglo-Saxon calendar page for June, showing a man blowing a horn, with other men cutting and loading hay into a cart. The text below the illustration is in Latin, with Roman numerals. This calendar includes details of the lunar phases: the kalends (kl, full to new Moon), the nones (n, new Moon to first quarter), and the ides (id, first quarter to full Moon). In the Anglo-Saxon calender, the moon in June was called the 'Hay Moon'. It is thought that this calendar was produced in Winchester, England, in the period around 1030.
