Njörðr’s Wanderers, a Viking Age Living History Group
Njörðr’s Wanderers is an evidenced-based living history group. Their guiding principle is to present to the public the current knowledge of early Medieval trade, industry, and commerce through demonstration.
Their mission is to portray a typical seasonal trading camp found along any given waterway in the British Isles, between the years 800-1000. They portray the various peoples and cultures one would encounter in an emerging trade town, usually through ongoing demonstrations of different crafts, including wood, metal, leather, and textile work. They discuss and describe features of trade and daily life. Their camp is an integral part of their portrayal, in which they eat, sleep, trade, and entertain. The portray merchants and peoples from Scandinavia, Frankia, and around the British Isles.
Although they will not be able to set up their camp in person at the festival this year, they have provided us with the following videos to let you so you can join them virtually.
