EALDFAEDER - Biography

Experienced re-enactors from other groups came together in 2009 to form a major new group, Ealdfaeder, which means 'ancestor' in Old English. Between them they possess many skills to demonstrate to audiences: weaving, cookery, combat, runes, storytelling, carpentry, bone and leather crafts to name but a few. Their authentic encampment, extensive equipment and professional yet friendly approach can bring the Dark Ages alive for you!

Many of the members have worked regularly for years at prestigous historic venues such as Sutton Hoo and West Stow. One is a frequently published author and international lecturer on aspects of Anglo Saxon & Viking culture and heathen religion. Several have appeared on TV, radio and in films. Their safety record and knowledge is first class!
