Ydalir is the Manchester group of The Vikings, the UK's oldest and largest Dark Age re-enactment society. Formed in the 1990’s we portray Anglo Saxons and Vikings of the 8th to 11th Centuries. Although our membership is mainly based in the north west of England, we have members as far away as Germany.The group currently has 52 members.
Our events present a wide range of aspects of life in Viking age Europe, displaying Combat, Living History and period Crafts. Our commitment to high standards of accuracy has led to shows for highly prestigious clients such as English Heritage and the British Museum. Film work includes both serious documentary work and somewhat less serious feature films and advertising work. We currently meet four times a month in Salford and Beesley Green close to local transport links.
