Living history in the early medieval period
Besides showing the daily life in the Viking period, the Niflheim Vikings also give demonstrations at events, activities or weddings. There are different demonstrations with Viking fighters and archers. The demonstrations will show a viarity of weapons in the Viking period. More about the weapons used will be shown further on this webpage.
Bolow are a few examples of demonstrations by the Niflheim Vikings.
The Niflheim Vikings shows different fighting demonstrations, depending on the number of participants. It is possible to show one to one fights, weapon demonstrations and line battles. Together with other Viking groups we can reconstruct bigger fights or battlefields.
The safety precautions of many large re-enactment events in West and Eastern Europe are followed. Within the Niflheim Vikings we practice Codex Belli and the Húskarl fighting style.
Besides the different fighting demonstrations we also have archers available. They can give a archery demonstration. If the fighters have enough protection, the archers can also be a part of the fighting demonstrations. They will keep their enemies at a range with a rain of arrows.
When the time presents itself Viking games will be played. The games are based on games in the Viking period. Each game is not only ment to entertain, but also improve the body and insight in fighting. There are different games to be played, like Hnefatafl (boardgame), Jomswikinger (blindfold with chest), Glima (wrestling) and Toga Hönk (tug of war).
