Sunday 7th April : BloodAxe Vikings

This local Viking, dark age and migration period re-enactment and living history group, specialising in living history demonstrations and historic combat display, are going to be set up in the Hill Fort on Sunday 7th April.

BloodAxe Vikings strike a healthy balance between display combat and the day to day living history of what life was like in the dark Age period. As well as the combat displays with a variety of authentic period weapons, the group also focus on re-enactments of historical battles, the lifestyle, crafts and culture of life in the Viking times. Story telling and readings of famous poems and sagas of the period are always popular. Cooking is another area of interest as well as music, pastimes, crafts and games.

They will be bringing along weapons and other artifacts to assist with their re-enactments, displays, interactive story-telling, Q&A sessions and cookery demonstrations, amongst other things. The public will be able to handle some of the living history artifacts and presentations, under supervision by the Vikings. The event is sure to be an enjoyable and educational day.
