Svartland Living History Society originate from the Black Country area of the West Midlands, from which we take our name.
We re-create the lifestyles of the Vikings during the 9th - 11th Century.
We are available for events throughout the UK and Europe. Please see our Bookings page for more details.
Svartland was formed in 2006, and our members have many years of previous experience in historical re-enactment with other groups and societies.
Svartland has an impressive Living History encampment, with numerous authentic period tents, where we demonstrate a variety of Viking Age crafts, skills, games and pastimes. Since the period we re-create was not always peaceful, we also provide combat displays, where our warriors fight equipped with a variety of weaponry.
Svartland members are approachable and friendly. We enjoy talking to people, answering their questions and sharing our knowledge of the Viking Age with them.
We always welcome new members and are a "family friendly" society. Membership information can be found elsewhere on this website.
