5th Annual Viking Encampment on the Grounds of Barrington Hall


September 28-29, 2019, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM



See Viking life re-enacted at the 5th Annual Viking Encampment at Barrington Hall. This free family-friendly event boasts several demonstrations of Viking ritual combat, crafts and camp life, complete with a Kids Zone for children. The Nordrike Vikingar Viking Living Historians will reenact events and tasks integral to Viking culture, including axe-throwing, receiving notice to assemble for battle, feasting with the community, and praying for blessing of the Norse gods.

Other demonstrations will include preparing for battle with traditional weapons, fighting techniques, clothing and crafts. The encampment leaders will choose their best warriors to lead the force and command their ships, giving historically-accurate insight into how the Norse prepared for raiding and war.

Food and drink will be available for purchase. For more information, call 770-640-3855 or email Bill Browning at wbrowning@roswellgov.com.
