Hrafnslith are available for events throughout the Wessex (Dorset) and we can organise a local visit to you for your show. Our displays can be tailored to suit your individual requirements.

We provide an authentic encampment with craft demonstrations and a variety of combat scenarios.

Crafts and skills currently demonstrated by Hrafnslith members include the following:

  • Games & Pastimes
  • Story Telling
  • Tablet Weaving
  • Sewing
  • Braid Making
  • Net Making
  • Cooking
  • Butter Making

We also have our Armoury, where the weapons are displayed.

We offer a fully interactive experience for your visitors who can try their hand at several crafts for example making braid.

Visitors may also handle the weaponry (under supervision), try on the helmets, hold the shields and see what it was like to be a Viking or Saxon warrior.

We have participated in many events all across the UK, from small scale talks and shows to large displays for clients such as English Heritage, P.A.S.T.E, National Trust, Abbottsbury Tithe Barn and other local authorities.

We take pride in the quality of the items used in our displays, such as the clothing and the weaponry, striving to provide the most authentic experience of Viking-age life we possibly can.
