We strive for authenticity during the event and all participants should have as authentic gear as possible. While your clothes and equipment are most likely based on actual archaeological findings we also ask you use only gear that fits together in a historical context, perhaps based on social class or geographical location. For instance if you are not portraying a huscarl most likely you would not wear chainmail, and we ask you to refrain from wearing a mishmash of slavic and Hedeby inspired clothes.


Breakfast and lunch will be served during Saturday and Sunday. During Saturday dinner will also be provided. Bring your own dinner bowl, drinking vessel, spoon and knife. Water will be served during all meals, if you want to drink anything else please bring it yourself.


The camp site will be available from Friday to Sunday. There will be water, toilets and two large common fireplaces with benches. During the evenings we gather by the fires to exchange tales, brag and share experiences. This is also the place where the feast will be held Saturday night.
