Reenactment fighting, crafting, shows and entertainment, sports and athletics, archaeological research, camping or even a bit of poetry - all in a historical context of course.
A story focused on two small forces that struggle for control of a strategically important location. One chieftain from Norway and one chieftain from Denmark battle for their kings’ control of the area.
Besides recreating a historical period, crafting, research and camplife we also practice what we call reenactment fighting (fr. Swedish "Härkamp"). This is a martial art adapted to reenactment groups primarily using melee weapons.
The crafting skills of the vikings held a very high standard and many of the techniques from then are still in use today. Elvegrimarne tries to reconstruct these techniques and we always have new upcoming projects in the pipe.
Elvegrimarne believes that the old norse poetry is an important aspect of any accomplished viking, and just by looking at great names in the viking era history you will find skalds and historians such as Snorre Sturlasson.
