Looking for Anglo-Saxon Groups in or around Coventry

Postby Lordy » Thu Aug 14, 2014 8:11 pm

Hi All

I'm interested in joining an Anglo-Saxon re-enactment group in or around the Coventry area. This is my favourite period of British History. Of history in general really. Would really appreciate it if somebody could point me in the direction of one.

All answers greatly appreciated.

Ian.

Which bit are you interested in, early (pagan period 5th-7th century), middle (7th-9th, including Alfred the Great and the early Viking raids) or late (9th-11th century, the Danelaw)?
There's 500 years to choose from.

Hi Both

Many thanks for your replies. Early to middle are my favourite bits of Anglo-Saxon history, but I'm interested in it all really. Northampton looks a good possibility.

Vikings of Middle England (Viking age Saxon contingent) and Wulfingas (Migration period Saxon) are up in Leicester.
