This weekend my children and Husband were able to participate in a Viking village. My husband belongs to the group Regia and likes to spend the occasional weekend portraying the life of a Viking Warrior! As a family we have all learned a great deal about this period and the children now have their "kit" and are able to participate as well. I am still waiting to get my "kit" but will soon be able to join in. Until then I have been designated family photographer:)
The viking village and various tents. There were approximately 25 campsites
Lots of viking children running around
Lyre and a viking sharpening his knife
Copper smith making bracelets.
Turning butter, which takes all day for a very little amount:)
Nal binding socks. I even learned how although I have a long way to go before my husband can wear any socks that I make:) This is a precursor to knitting or crochet.
