Trehövdingating at Gene the 12:th of july 2008


Under the red and yellow leafs in the autum forrest the rumour has spread north! Before the first snow fell at the Midwinterbloot it came to the people at Högom. With the men on the last ship to the forges at Gene the word come to Harald the Cheftain in the bay. The Southerners had sent men up the coast that came with cold steel and hard negotiations.

This where not as of old, they where quicker in speech and faster to ill deeds. It was said they had served with the high king in micklagaard and there they had learned not only the worth of silver but also intrigue and sweet words. Now they had set their greedy eyes on the north and the men of Anger and Högoms fine iron. In the dark hall Harald had spoken with his wife and they had sent word out for warriors in case of hard times.

Thise had came during the isecold days after the winter solstice. Not quite the most handsome or friendliest but known for their loyalty to one who gave gifts. Not the stuff for legends but those who did their work without hesitation in the face of the horrors of battle. When the Ice broke Harald sent men to Högom ant the Jamts and asked the cheftains Brandr and Bodvar to meet him at the hight of summer. Those two did not have love for eachother but in this bad time they where bound to come. The people of Gene hoped the blood of brother would not be spilled and that the Northerners could unite against those New Men from the plains of the Svea...

Well, let's make some advertising of this event, Martin. Wink
I didn't know you posted a topic about it, here.

Yes, me and my wife, Gracjana, we will be there, together with 3 of our friends from Poland.
And yes, I will be making demonstration of raising conical helmet of one piece of steel. I hope, as I haven't seen photos of smithy yet, Martin. Razz Yes, I know, my wife told me, you are very busy now. But so am I and I need to know soon what tools I need to take with me. If you want you can post the photos here. I am sure, people are interested in seeing reconstructed smithy from Vendel period! Happy
We will have some helmets made by me with us, so there will be possibility of seeing them in real.
I will encourage my friend Łukasz, who is going with us to make demonstration of making riveted mails.

So, don't hesitate and come to Gene Fornby! Martin and rest of group are very nice and hospitable people.

BTW - how many reenactors has confirmed their arrival?

Oh, I have almost forgot about one more very important attraction. You will be able to hear the famous "warcry" by Ester, little and lovely Martin's daughter! Wink She is really worth mentioned here. Happy It will be her first event, right Martin?
