Hastings 2006

Postby Guthroth » Tue Jan 10, 2006 11:27 am


For those who don't know it yet, October 14th this year will see the next big re-enactment of the battle of Hastings on the hill in front Battle Abbey.

These major events are staged every 5 or 6 years (1984, 1990, 1995 & 2000) and are essentially 'open' events to all who wish to attend provided they dress and equip themselves according to the event guidelines.

As in 2000, the event is being fronted on behalf of English Heritage by The Vikings http://www.vikingsonline.org.uk and the registration pages are here - http://hastings.vikingsonline.org.uk/ - along with links to the costume guides.

The event in 2000 saw about 1000 warriors and some hundreds of LH people in attendance and this one is expected to be a larger still, with many, mnay folk planning to travel from Europe, Russian, the US, Canada, Australia etc.

There is also a lively Yahoo mailing list dedicated to the event here :
