Herred of the Viking Society

Battle of Hastings 2017

21 members of Ordgar travelled to Battle to join other reenactors in the 951st anniversary of this battle.  Members of Saebert’s Folc also camped with us over the weekend.

The group put on a great living history display with farmers, fishermen, spoon whittling, authentic cooking, braiding and weapon demonstrations to name a few crafts.  We even had a monk.

Ordgar archers and slingers fired their missiles into the enemy shield wall, inflicting many losses to our foes.

Shield wall warriors armed with spear, sword and axes, faced the thunderous might of a Norman horse cavalry charge.
