There's a couple of Vike groups that might suit.

Go to CF, knock three times and ask for Gyrth and the Gloomy Tables.

Gesithas are a good little group, not a lot of combat though.
Hwicce will make you welcome but they are all a bit chavvy in Milton Keynes
Ouskjarr are in Cambridgeshire, and i think their membership is closed
Wryngwurm in Bedfordshire, good group

hope that helps

Have to admit, Monkeyboy is correct on that part. Well, the Englisc mob were initially hired, and then just refused to go (bloody tourists).

Nige, have never seen anything anywhere to suggest the Normans were invited in - always thought we just walked in with style
