Minor Morvleydh See as VCal

Morvleydh - The Cornish arm of The Vikings! - are delighted to be supporting the Launceston Heritage Festival by bringing our warriors, crafters and encampment to the town centre for the weekend to represent the Battle of Hehil in 722 where the forces of Wessex, having killed the King of Dumnonia and invaded Devon in 710, were met by the Cornish somewhere in mid Devon and defeated. The defeat set the stage for a further century of conflict where Wessex was unable to stamp out the Cornish resistance and, as such, set the scene for the survival of Cornwall as a seperate nation.

We will have exciting combat displays, a living history area and the opportunity for under 10s to unleash their inner Viking as part of our Kiddie-Vike display!

Major Amounderness See as VCal

A unique, fun and educational day out, set in the beautiful rural landscape of Locko Park, near Derby. This one-off event will bring together Viking re-enactors from across the country and the world, to recreate a large Viking army encampment, full of craftsmen, traders and warriors, allowing visitors to step back a thousand years, to when England was under threat from fierce Viking invaders.

It's an interactive day, full of things to see and do, for adults and kids: Watch and talk to period craftsmen at work, see Viking boats up close and meet their crews and peruse and buy the exotic goods for sale at the Viking market. Meet Viking warriors and get hands-on with their equipment. Children can have-a-go at forming their own Viking shield-wall. The highlight of the day will be the 'Battle of Thousand Spears', as the invading Viking army faces the Anglo-Saxon army of Mercia, in the largest Viking-era battle in the UK for a thousand years.

The Viking Festival will celebrate and illuminate a dark-age of Britain's history.
