Welcome to "The Vikings!" Wiki

The wiki is intended to help you find all you need to know about membership of "The Vikings!" reenactment society. The information on these pages will be as correct, and up to date, as we can make it but the official versions of any rules and regulations will be as published in the official Society guides and documentation and stored on DocStore. The wiki is intended to make some of this material more accessible, not to replace the detailed documentation.

This wiki is currently under construction and probably always will be! Whilst editing a page is limited to only a few Society members, the "Discussion" tab, which anyone can edit, allows everyone to question and debate. We encourage you to use it.

  • While the wiki is intended to provide a wide range of helpful information, it also includes formal rules and regulations which apply to members of the Vikings Society and any guests attending our events. These are indicated in text boxes with the Society logo, like this.

The History of the Society

Online archive

The society operates an online archive system at which has over 50000 items listed dating from the early 1970s up to the present day. The aim of the archive is to present as much of the history of the society as we can for public consumption, including photos, videos, documents, event flyers and posters, and anything else (including old kit and clothing) which is part of our shared heritage.

More recent documents may be subject to restricted access for a short time for obvious commercial reasons.
