Description

Ancient Arts Fellowship, Inc. is a medieval re-enactment group based in Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. They focus on the ‘Dark Ages’, or early medieval period, especially the 8th century through to the Norman invasion of England in 1066 (images about this event from the Bayeux tapestry are featured on their website). Geographically the focus is on northern Europe and Britain, featuring such peoples as Anglo-Saxons, Normans, and Vikings. Members participate in combat, arts and crafts, and food, with their website claiming that you can ‘feast on food that William the Conqueror [c. 1028-1087] would have eaten’. The group run educational classes for school groups and do public performances.
