The Encampment


Dark Ages Life

Our living history encampment is a multi-sensory experience bringing the dark ages vividly to life. We showcase a range of skills including leatherwork, smithcraft, spinning, weaving, cookery and rune-lore, as well as portraying the day to day life of a typical Saxon/Viking.

Our members are encouraged to research the history of their craft and we have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience. We are always happy to answer questions, demonstrate techniques and let people have a go. Much of what we produce is also available for purchase, and our traders are more than happy to tender quotes for bespoke commissions.
