Svartland are available for events throughout the UK and Europe.  Our displays can be tailored to suit your individual requirements.  We provide an authentic encampment with craft demonstrations and a variety of combat scenarios.

Crafts and skills currently demonstrated by Svartland members include the following:

Wood carving, wood turning, green woodworking, leather working, pottery, metal working, horn & bone working, jewellery making, coin striking, games & pastimes, story telling, tablet weaving, sewing, clothes making, braid making, fletching, net making, fishing, fur trading, cooking, butter making, herbalism and spice trading.  We also have our Armoury, where the weapons are displayed.

We offer a fully interactive experience for your visitors, who can try their hand at several crafts such as making braid.  Visitors may also handle the weaponry (under supervision), try on the helmets, hold the shields and see what it was like to be a Viking or Saxon warrior.

We have participated in many events all across the UK, from small scale talks and shows to large displays for clients such as English Heritage, History Fair, The Battle of Camlann, The Midlands History Festival and local authorities.

We take pride in the quality of the items used in our displays, such as the clothing and the weaponry, striving to provide the most authentic experience of Viking-age life we possibly can.
