The theme of this year’s event will be early medieval Scandinavia. During the workshops you will be able to try your hand at, among others: in archaeological excavations (exploring a boat burial) and making a model of a long Viking boat. There will also be a special exhibition – this time a photographic one entitled “Norse gods”, made available by the Utgard Association from Gliwice. “Scandinavians” from the reconstruction group will present the camp, everyday life, everyday objects, handicrafts, and will also conduct thematic workshops – weaving and herbalism. The special guest of the event will be Ph. D. Jakub Morawiec, from the Institute of History of the University of Silesia, a well-known researcher of the Viking Age, who will try to familiarize the audience with these extremely interesting times in his lecture.
