Lorraine describes these as :
“Aestel” screen styluses. Aestal is word which was used to describe a pointing tool or pointer designed and used for manuscript reading. The manuscripts of that time were commissioned by Alfred the Great (Old English: Ælfrēd, Ælfrǣd, 'Elf-counsel' or 'Wise-elf'; between 847 and 849 – 26 October 899) who was King of England (of Wessex and of the Anglo-Saxons) and was a known champion of education, law and civil society.
