I just want to thank everyone for an amazing year, both for me as a person for being given the chance to travel the world to teach and meet some incredible people, but also for the quite stunning development the HROARR site has had over the last few years with the help of all the authors and readers.

This year we have had 18 authors sharing 38 good quality articles for free which is just amazing. The stats are interesting as we appear to have had more than 50,000 unique returning visitors from more than a 100 countries. Out of those about 25,000 have visited the site more than 10 times. This seems to indicate a large number of non-HEMA people using the site as well, with a much greater audience of reenactors, and other people with an interest in historical combat, arms and armour. In total the site has had about 200,000 page views in 2013 and more than half have lasted for more than a minute each on average.

This year we have also seen the introduction of some very cool things. Three clubs have their own forums on HROARR now (as can any club for free). We have a very good book page, maintained by GHFS member Mattias Moberg and we also saw the very first HEMA Scholar Awards which we have great hopes for as something that will stand on its own in the future.

Of course we have also added more clubs to the club list, more downloadable manuals to the manual list, more instructors and workshops on their respective pages and more events on the events list. Please continue helping us keeping all this updated. We need your continued help.


And again for you, here are the articles of 2013:
