Authentically costumed Norse Vikings will be in tents demonstrating Viking crafts on Sunday, August 8 from 10am to 4pm.
Bailiffgate Museum and Artwork Gallery has teamed up with Marketplace Place Administration Ltd, the new leaseholders of the current market, to organise a special Sunday marketplace with a vast variety of crafts, foods, clothes, handmade leather products, ironwork and Viking themed items and guides.
Northumbria Vikings, a North East dim age re-enactment group, are part of the countrywide United kingdom Vikings, the greatest and longest founded dark age re-enactment culture in the United Kingdom.
Their dwelling record exhibit will clearly show daily life 1,000 years ago and display crafts of the time these as woodworking, metalworking, boneworking, weaving and pottery.
When most men and women think of Vikings they picture bearded warriors wreaking havoc, or legendary gods with magic hammers.
But the Norse men and women who settled in northern England in the 9th and 10th generations also experienced a intriguing society.
The current exhibition at Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery – ‘Vikings: Actuality and Fiction’ explores who they genuinely had been: from the apparel they wore to the pursuits they did for enjoyable.
The exhibition brings visitors up shut to 1,000 year old artefacts and displays how the Vikings impacted the world, not just by raiding and conquering but as a result of craft-producing and trading.
This myth-busting exhibition is a exclusive collaboration with the JORVIK Team, the men and women driving JORVIK Viking Centre in York.
