Information (ENG)

Trondheim vikinglag is a voluntary organization made up of members of all ages. What we all have in common is that we are interested in the Viking Age or craftsmanship from the period. What we do is often called living history or reenactment. In addition, we are actively involved in the historical dissemination of the period.We place a particular focus on expanding our knowledge of crafts and everyday life in the Iron Age up to the end of the 11th century. For us, Trøndelag in Norway is the main area we focus on the most, but of course you have to look to other areas as well in the search for knowledge.

Living history and dissemination
What we do is often called reenactment or living history. It’s a great way to bring history to life. Ways we bring the Viking Age to life are often through crafts and historical cooking. We make clothes and shoes, we make our own equipment and food in a historical way. In order to recreate or create interpretations of clothing and equipment they had in the Viking Age, we use archaeological and historical sources as aids. It is important for us to have as historically correct interpretations as possible, and this is important to be able to convey the period in a good, educational and interesting way.As part of our dissemination, we often travel around to other Viking markets throughout Europe. Sometimes we travel together as a team, other times individual members travel. When we are at a historic market, we leave everything modern behind, we cook over the fire and sleep in tents. In addition, we are engaged by external actors to convey history. In June, we organize our own brand in Trondheim. You can read more about it here.

Member activities
For our members, we also have monthly members’ evenings where we do crafts together, among otherthings. From time to time we also arrange pub evenings or cafe meetings to be able to socialize together.

Trondheim vikinglag consists of many people with a lot of knowledge and we try to hold courses in various crafts as often as we get the chance. We also have courses with external course instructors from near and far. Please let us know if you have a wish for a course or if you have any questions regarding our member evenings.
