Graccus of Rome
In the South West we have a rich and proud historical heritage.
Much is made of Roman Exeter and the seafaring traditions of our Tudor forebears, but history is so much more than this.
Often overlooked is the period between the 8th and the 11th centuries known by some as the Dark Ages. The people of this period of history were as skilled as the Romans (think of the truly striking artefacts found at Sutton Hoo and recently the Staffordshire Hoard), as daring explorers as Sir Francis Drake (Viking voyagers reached America in open long-ships) and as chivalrous as the Knights of the fabled ‘Round Table’.
Here to redress this state of affairs is our re-enactment group – Hildsvin, named after Freyer’s solid gold boar, Hildsvin
literally ‘Hild’ =battle & ‘svin’ = swine’
At events from village fêtes to County shows, Hildsvin can entertain and educate your public from the moment you open until you time you close (including exhilarating area slots) and will provide a firm foundation for the National Curriculum upon which any teachers can subsequently build.
With a level of commitment and accuracy second to none, the Group is a registered charity, part of ‘The Vikings’ (Britain’s premier re-enactment society), with members donating their time out of a love for the subject. All events are bespoke and individually tailored to your particular requirements and for your peace of mind are covered by full 3rd party insurance.
