Description

Ascomanni Medieval Re-enactment Society is a living history group based in the Tasmanian city of Launceston. The group focus on Anglo-Saxons, Normans, and Vikings during the later Viking Age, specifically the period 966-1066 ending with the Norwegian defeat at Stamford Bridge and the Norman victory at Hastings. Ascomanni (a term used for the Vikings by the eleventh-century German chronicler Adam of Bremen) focus both on the daily life and martial aspects of the Viking Age.

Their website banner is an image of the reconstructed Oseberg Tapestry which was found in the Oseberg ship burial in Norway, c. 834.
