I don’t live in the past—I only visit—and so can you!


The last year has been a mixed bag. Most reenactors do it for the chance to talk with and demonstrate to the public. However, they also do it for the chance to share information with fellow reenactors and to get more goodies.

I have been fortunate. I have gotten to events that I never have because they did Zoom meetings (Virtual TORM and Jorvik Virtual Viking Thing for example) and have been able to Zoom with fellow reenactors socially. I’ve met many folks who have just ben names on a page!

And because I have not had to py for travel, for hotel costs and the such, I have had plenty of money to spend on reenacting goodies that I had always wanted to buy (or to make) and been unable to afford! Including an aestrel, a mail shirt, a seal, a set of glass tafl men, a remarlable set of replicas of the Lewis chessmen and all sorts of smaller objects made and sold by smaller distributors (amazing hw I did not buy many things from any corporate sources). Did you? I havealso been incredibly more productive on woodworking projects (durig the warm weather). Have you?

I hope to do show-and-tell the next few years. Please feel free to join in!
