Description

The New England Medieval Arts Society (NEMAS) are a historical re-enactment group based in the New South Wales city of Armidale. The group concentrates on the fourth- to eleventh-century early medieval period (sometimes referred to as the ‘Dark Ages’), featuring such groups as the Byzantines, Anglo-Saxons, Normans, and Vikings. As well as weapons, armour, and battles, the group also re-creates woodworking, blacksmithing, tanning, spinning, and weaving. NEMAS headquarters is at a longhouse built in the Armidale State Forest. The longhouse was a building form common among ‘Germanic’ peoples, such as the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, in early medieval Europe.
