Norse Queen 1000 AD

The picture is of me when I am telling the story of what life is like for a Norse queen 1000 AD when the men go A-Viking and the women are left in charge.  I display pictures of the ships used and what a typical "village" looked like.  I also generously share "cures" for ailments for people who do not realize they have ailments!

Welcome, Jan!

It sounds like you definitely bring lots of Nordic lore to life.  Perhaps the By the Fire group will interest you as you are nearly reenacting, but look over the many groups & the general questions in the forum.  With our almost 1800 international members, I'm sure you'll enjoy networking here.  Keywords like Norse, Nordic, Viking, trolls, & possibly Nissen in the search box at the top of each page should interest you a great deal, too. 

In other words, ENJOY getting to know this site.  Sounds like a good bet you will.
