"Rays of sun glinted off dented helms as two knights squared off on a grassy knoll. Lord Ciaran O'Heildhe, a 15th century Irish knight, armed with sword and shield, faced Lord Hamer Ulfsson a 10th century Viking with a sword clenched in one hand and a bardiche, or great ax, clenched in the other." Nicholas Bergin of the Burlington, Iowa Hawk Eye was there to cover the action.

Come join us again in the heat of the summer sun for a weekend of fun. A recreation of the wonderfully successful invasion of England in 1066 is to occur. Be one of the Good (Normans), Bad (Vikings), or Ugly (Saxons) (autocrat preference definitely shows) as we try to relive a bit of England's important history.
There will be fighting, archery, and maybe some more fighting.
The fighting will include Warlord tourneys, hill battles, and bridge battles, and whatever else comes to mind. Weapons may be restricted to those of the time. There may even be a torchlight tourney. There may be War Maneuvers afte rthe tourneys if time allows.
