Our local re-enactment group held a Viking craft weekend so we could all learn a new skill to use during our living history events. Since I am still trying to figure out what viking skill I have I signed up for a few things that interested me. My husband decided to not bring his Viking war gear so he could also concentrate on learning a few Viking crafts.
Both my husband and I took the arrow making class. I have found out I am not too bad shooting a long bow. I may make that my fighting skill for future events.
Both of us worked on our Long bow skills, we are going to invest in a long bow so we can practice more at home and take back with us to the states.
It is my Husband and my hope that we will be able to use these skills once we return to the states to show kids how the vikings really lived instead of the silly versions they see on TV and in the Movies. We aren't quite sure how we planned to do this but that is why we keep learning and participating in this part of history re enactment.
