Vikings at Largs

On Saturday 5th of September we went to Largs to have a look at the viking village there. It's some sort of yearly festival to remember a viking battle in the 1200's. They also do a reenactment of the battle, but it was a bit too late in the evening for us.This is the entrance to Largs viking village, it was a very wet and windy day

Picture of the houses in the village Some viking ladies doing their crafts

This viking has mittens on, they are not knitted nor crocheted, but done the old viking way with naalebinding

I am not sure what this viking was doing, but he was very intense and focused..and I do see it's definetly something to do with runes.
There was also a tent with wool and drop spindles, and the lady dyed the wool with natural colouring...of have lost her card, and I have no picutes..was too busy looking..!
I loved it, and will go next year as well!
