Rules of the camp
We give our best to be the best! The goal is to show and tell to visitors our own period. Everybody should be able to tell general information about the clothes they are wearing, the tent they live in, the bench they sit on and the bread they are eating. If you can't tell it yourself, point to person who can.
Be friendly, attentive and helpful. Invite visitors to take part in your workshops, games and other activities.
Period and authenticity
- Nothing modern in view! No plastic, phones, hiking boots, swiss army knives or lightbulbs... Glasses are allowed, but contact lenses are preferred.
Exceptions are allowed for children in case of bad weather.
- Vikings knew that tobacco is bad for your health. Same is true for medieval people. Therefore we too don't smoke in the camp. (If you really need to, then go and hide so shamans and doctors won't see.)
- Food and drink must also be authentic or at least appear to be. Vikings thought tomatoes to be unhealthy. We don't know why.
- Every open tent must represent a specific period and its content must be true to that period.
- Goods must be authentic.
- Merchant must know the goods, how they are produced and their uses.
- Goods must fit the merchant: viking should not sell medieval ceramics nor should medieval merchant sell viking helmets. Bottle openers and lighters are just NO!
Crafts should be presented using authentic tools and materials.
