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.
