Viking Village Demo V

Calling all Vikings (and neighbors of Vikings)! It's time once again to set up our Viking Village at the Annual Jamestown Scandinavian Folk Festival. We would love to have as many people as possible join us in this celebration of all things Viking.

This year the festival director has expressed the desire for a larger SCA presence at the festival. Currently we will have thrown weapons, Kube, and Hnefatafl in addition to Viking age displays. We would like to have heavy weapons and archery provided we have marshals and participants.

The area our village is set up is situated near the Leif Ericson Viking Ship and the Norwegian horse (real horse/s). We have plenty of room for:
Archery; Armor; Beads; Camping; Drop spindles; Felting; Fingerloop Braiding; Heavy Fighting; Hnefatafl; Kube; Mead; Naalbinding; Spang; Thrown Weapons; Viking Accessories; Viking Age Personal Display; Viking Clothing; Viking Culture; Viking Food; Viking Jewelry; Viking Languages; Viking Shoes; Viking Skalds; Viking Textiles; Wood Chip Carving
