Hammer Horde was formed at Yuletide of 2017 by musician and huscarl, Hrafn Rikardson and his wife Elska Njalsdottir.

We are a combat and living history group based in Sheffield, representing the city and wider South Yorkshire. Our shields bear the hammers of a smith, a mark of respect to the steel industry and all that it meant to the good folks of our region. Our purpose is to re-enact the age of the Vikings and Anglo Saxons.

A family friendly collection of warriors and crafters, we are very keen to encourage new members from our area.

Hammer Horde meets for training and crafting every other Sunday from 6.30-8.30PM at Gleedless Scout Hut, Sheffield. We welcome guests from other groups and new prospective members.
