Take an Immersive Journey Through Viking Waterford
Déise Medieval is a Waterford-based amateur society for Living History and Medieval Combat enthusiasts who aim to recreate an early Viking settlement and bring to life the crafts and skills of the early Viking period in Waterford.
For Winterval they will recreate a tented village manned by experienced re-enactors. All the participants dress, live and work in an authentic recreation of Viking life. In a family friendly atmosphere visitors can see the daily life and crafts practised by our ancestors including; spinning, weaving, leather working, metalwork and black smiting, coin striking and woodwork.
Their period tents are full of homely furniture and household goods, authentic cooking is done over the open fire, and all the re-enactors are friendly and very experienced in demonstrating their crafts and answering questions..... visitors may be able to try some crafts for themselves and can certainly learn to play Hnefatafl a popular Viking board game.
