We are a Viking and Saxon re-enactment group based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. We aim to portray life in our period from early 9th Century to mid 11th Century. The group name (pronounced Ick - Thur - Near) means "Oak Thorny" and takes its inspiration from the Viking stag who stood upon the roof of Odin's hall Valhalla. The waters which flow from his antlers feed all the world's rivers. Our shield colours are a yellow cross on a blue background which is the flag of St Albans and also Mercia, the white antlers on top represent both Hertfordshire and Eikthyrnir.

The group was founded in September 2019 and we currently have a small but dedicated membership, which is growing all the time. We currently have group meetings once a month and training every thursday evening.
